I have two groups of users that need to be able to install programs and use active x quite frequently, is there anyway to give them the ability to install programs without adding them to the domain admins group.
I am running Small Business Server 2003

Make them local admins

by DMambo In reply to user privilages

Can you just add them to the admin group on the PC's they use? At least that keeps them from screwing with any other machines.

That may work but I was looking for a solution that would work with the roaming profiles, so they would be able to use these programs on any computer.

Add a security group to the Domain Admins group

by DMambo In reply to domain

Create a group to hold these folks and add that group to Domain Admins. That way you can pull them from Domain Admins whenever you want.

New software version out? Put this sec group into Domain admins. All clients updated? Yank the group from domain admins.
