Windows 2k user rights

By kent2612 ·
I have a Win2k server (domain controller). With users using Win2k Pro. Win2k by default do not allow Domain users the rights to install software applications themselves.
I would like to allow the users to have the rights to install softwares while not granting them user rights of Domain Admins or Administrators.
Please help thank you :)
Is it possible to create a new Security Group where i can specify the necessary rights i would like to grant the users?

You can do this by making the user a power user on his local machine. I do not know of any domain wide way of doing this. Log into the local machine as the local administrator (the one created at install) and make the user a member of power users.
Good luck!

I would like the users to have only one user account to logon to the Win2k domain, granting them administrator or power user rights on the their local PC would not solve the problem.
Anyway, Mike thanks for your suggustion.

I would look under the Default Domain Policy. Under Computer and User configurations, there is the folder that contains Administrative templates. Under that is Windows Components. Under that is "Always install with elevated priviledges" If you click on that and go to the explain tab it will tell you some very important stuff about this potentially dangerous policy. I hope that helps.

Add the Domain user group that the users are in to the local Power Users or local Administrators group on each machine
