I have recently upgraded one of our NT workstations to Win2000 on Active Directory2000.

THz issue I have is that by policy, all Users in an OU group are denied the right-click context menu.
It is my wish to promote one only of the Users within this OU group, to have the right-click, while maintaining the existing policy of no right-click.

I have tried making the individual an Administer of his "local" machine, but to no avail.
I have created a new OU specifically for this computer and changed / enabled the "Windows Explorer's default context" menu.
I disabled Inheritance of the Default Domain Group Policy
Then I tried to set the over ride option for this OU.

Key to this is that the Operator is part of a specific User Group, and for operational reasons I do not think I can create a specific account just for him.
