WINDOWS SERVER 2003 LOGINS WITH LOCAL CONTROL

When I add a user to the Domain and they log in locally they are not able to install certian things like printers and etc.  I am in an envoirnment where the user might have to install something.  I checked Domain Controller Settings under "Local Policies" but I have no found anything on this.  What needs to be done to make this happen?

Using the group policy method I mentioned above keeps you from having to touch each computer since it sounds like this needs to be for all domain users across your domain. Course this would mean that all your domain users are admins on each machine, not just their own. Not sure if that is appropriate in your setting or not.

Otherwise, from the AD, you could right click on each computer and choose "manage computer". This will get you into the computer management console and from there you could add the specific user to the local admin group remotely from the server.

you will need to add the local user to the local administrators group

They need either local admin/power user permission on the workstation or they need delegated control from Active Directory.

Unless there's issues in a site I usually grant local admin rights to Domain USers...
