Users logging into multiple computers and local file access security.
Posted on 2004-04-12
Windows 2000 domain XP clients. I have around 100 users that switch between computers fairly often for short periods of time. We have a 3rd party application that a) requires the user to have local administrative rights b) uses a login script to map printers.
I do not want to add 100 users to the local admin group on every pc. I thought to use a generic account but this poses a problem mapping printers and also logging into our exchange server.
Can I configure local rights through active directory? Obviously I dont want users with domain privelidges but if I can give them specific access to a folder in windows directory that would work. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about doing this? Thanks in advance.
