      I am supporting a testing lab for power plant equipment and the management are restricting the domain user account from being in the local administrator account on the testing systems.
Using various SysInternals tools, permissions issues are being resolved except for the issue of the ability to change COM Port settings is required for certain tests.
How do I provide a domain user the ability to change COM Port settings without making them the local administrator?
The systems are in a Windows 2003 Active Directory domain.
