problem adding a domain account to the local Administrators group
Posted on 2006-05-17
I have one phyical machine called SPSController acts as a domain controller running Windows 2003 server SP1. Then I have a Virtual machine called SPSPortal also running Windows 2003 server SP1. SPSPortal is under the same domain and I proof that by seeing it under active directory users and computers > computer
I am having problem adding a domain account to the local Administrators group on SPSPortal.
Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Local Users and Groups > Groups
I open the Administrator group, then press "Add..." The only thing in the "From this location" box is the local machine I'm working on, so I press the "Locations" button. In the resulting window, there is no other option to select from. The only icon in that window is the local machine.
Any ideas how to fix it? thx.
