New user/personal computer

Dear Experts,

I have some new users to my network.  They have brought there own computers to the company.  When they log in to the network their computers are given the rights assigned to them by the domain. (domain users)

I want them to log into the domain but have full control over their computers.  

Can anyone help me with this issue?

I appreciate the time.

Hi ReggieM,

Make sure their useraccounts have "local" administrative rights.

To clarify - make their domain account part of the local Administrators...
User Manager (start->run->usrmgr)
or start->run->lusrmgr.msc
to do this...(what OS?)

It was a few years back, but I remember making a login script that would add the domain Administrators group to the Local Administrators group whenever anyone logged into the domain.  (Had a problem with some users trying to use the domain but lock out the domain admins....)

It shouldn't be *too* much harder to add the account logging in, although ideally you'd want to do it only for those users and only when logging in on their personal machines.  There's probably a slick Group Policy way to do that.

Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

Group policies probably would take care of it, but check out this recent question pertaining to setting the local group via login script:  https://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Q_20925959.html
