Server 2003 Local Permission issues

We just installed an SBS 2008 box in a client of ours replacing an SBS 2003 setup by an old IT company.

In the setup they have a second server running Server 2003 Standard that runs a software called Timberline (name of the old server was termainal so I don't know if Terminal Services was intended) however it was never used.

Once the SBS08 box was setup we removed the Server 03 box from the domain and readded it.  Logging in with a created administrator account on the domain.

The noticed issue is that if I even copy a ZIP file or Installer to the computer it says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file.  You may not have the appropriate permission to access item."

The only way I can install anything is if I login as the local admin.  I've tried adding the domain login to the local administrators group as well.

Also,  There is no option to shut down or restart the computer.  I have to open the command prompt and do a shutdown /r /f  if that's any clue.  The option isn't there under the local admin either.

Somehow the server is locked down and I'd love to open it back up again as there's no reason it sould've been in the first place.

Thanks

the terminal server portion of it was never used.

The rest of the server is used for a few different programs.

We resolved the issue with editing the cached local policy settings on the server.  There must have been old settings setup on the replaced domain controller before we got in.  Issue resolved.
