I have just added a new server to a company for the first time. Prior to this they were just using a workgroup. The server I installed is SBS 2008 and all of the computers are Vista 32 bit.
I can't figure out the computer permissions. Before I migrated I used the "Windows Easy Transfer" and backed up all of the user data. Then I used http://connect to add the computer to the domain. Then I used the "Easy Transfer" again to restore all of their files and settings.

Within SBS everybody is a standard user. Yet about half of the users have local admin rights on their PC's while the other half don't.
I have 2 questions:
1. How do I modify these "Standard Users" to lose their local admin rights?
2. What did i screw up to cause this in the first place?

I gather that Ican modify this locally on the computers? I assume that is is through Control Panel users, however, I don't think that Domain accounts show up here. How would I do this?

huh? you want to remove domain user accounts from local admin on the machines right?
Computer management | local users and groups | groups | administrators | remove the people you dont want in there.
