I am resubmitting this question because it has become more of an issue now...

I have a 2003 R2 terminal server and I would like to put a shortcut on it that points to an executable on another 2003 R2 server.  When I try to run the program this way I get a message saying I don't have permissions even if I am in as domain admin.  I assume this is a security setting.  Can someone tell me how to allow this?

In addition, I have one set of servers where this works, but it doesn't work on another group of servers on another network.  As a test I have simply been trying to browse to notepad.exe using unc paths logged in as domain admin.  On one network it works, on the other it doesn't.

Help please...

      *You have to take the ownership of the shared folder at the other r2 server in which this executable resides. Also right click the folder and make sure domain admin account has all necessary rights and there is no other implict permision that may affect admin permissions.
       *Also try to reach the administrative share \\server\c$\ and then try to run a program.
      *In terminal services configuration panel, right click terminal server RDP-tcp>properties>permissions and check if admin account has full rights.

Thanks for the response.

As you suggested, I made domain admins the owner of the share and verified that domain admins had full rights and that they propegated down to the actual executable.
I also verified that admins have full rights from terminal services config.

These all seem like the right things, but I still can't run a program, either from the share or the c$ admin share.  Any other thoughts?  Would some machine policy be restricting this?

Bingo!!!  That did it!  Thanks so much.

To be clear... I needed to add the server that had the program I was trying to run into the Local Intranet zone of the server I was trying to run the program from.
