User Rights and Permissions

By russlane ·
In a Windows 2000 client/server network users need to access Quick Books folders on the server. To access these books they must belong to the domain adminstrators group. How can I let users access these folders without making them members of the Domain Admins group?

Why not just change the NTFS Security permissions on the folder on your Win2K server to allow the Domain Users group access? Right-click on the folder holding your QuickBooks data, choose Properties -> Security, and click Add, then select your domain's Domain Users.

Create a group called Quickbook. Give that group read and write rights to the folder. Make the users that need the access a part of the Quickbook group.

The answer - the User Group has restricted access to System Resources by default. A domain admins can get around most restrictions. The domain user has to have rights to access system resources on the the local machine.
This is accomplished by logging on as an Administrator on the local machine - going to Control Panel/Users & Passwords and adding the user and the user's domain. You assign the users access power here.
Once the user is added Quickbooks can be used properly. The user only needs to belong to the Domain User's Group.
