Dmain administrator can't install programs or launch executables on server
Posted on 2008-10-27
I have 3 servers, one running 2003 Storage Server R2, and the other 2 running Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard. When I log onto any one of these servers as the domain administrator and try to install an application, I get a permissions error. I have to log on as the local admin to be able to complete any installs on any of these servers.
All the applications that I wish to install are located on a network share which I browse to and launch the executable. I have 3 other servers running Server 2003 Standard and I don't have this problem. If I copy the application locally and then try to run the install it still get the permission error. The only way I can get the install to begin is by launching the .exe while logged on as the local administrator. Any ideas?
