Terminal Server Clients

By joshg ·
I need to configure TS to allow clients to install programs, printers and modify the registry. How can I do this, I am looking for a Windows 2000 Power user rights only the user is in an AD domain.

Any thoughts. The admins can do all of thesebut we don't want to make everyone admins! Can you point me in the direction to find steps for this or give me your thoughts,

Thanks

Windows 2000 AD Domain with Terminal Server and Licensing running. Clients are able to access the server andstart programs but some programs need to modify reg to run and they generate errors.

As installing a program on a TS server always means MODIFYING THE SERVER (for all users), are you really SERIOUSLY certain that you are wanting to allow this?
I guess if installed programs need certain reg modifications to run, just install them better - with ACL's on this specific part of the registry allowing the access. Allowing users to install programs themselves can be done on fat client, but on terminal servers in my feeling that accounts to admin suicide. This limitation in flexibilityin the thin client model should have been considered in the early stages when you did make the choice for thin clients...

Have fun,

PS Installing printers same, choosing between already installed printer drivers of course can be done with normal user rights

That's what has to happen to get this software package to work. Every other piece of software works without admin rights.
