only domain admin group can install

I have a faculty group in which all faculty are members I need them to be able to install and modify registry for some programs they install and use so I need them to be local machine administrators without bumping up their rights on the network side

this is the restricted group setup I have

Group Members Member of
Administrator    STJ\Faculty, STJ\SISFIN, STJ\Staff, STJ\Techadmin  
BUILTIN\Administrators      sisk12, STJ\Administration, STJ\administrator, STJ\Faculty, STJ\SISFIN, STJ\SISK12, STJ\Staff, STJ\Techadmin, STJ\Techs  
BUILTIN\Remote Desktop Users     STJ\Domain Admins, STJ\Techadmin, STJ\Techs  

what am i doing wrong because it says they do not have rights to install

When you go into the local admin on a machine are they listed now (making sure the restricted group GPO is applying)

Are there any other GPOs that may prevent the installation of software (for example are you using whitelists like (\user configuration\administrative templates\system  ….  “Run only specified Windows applications”)   or Software Restriction Policies

thanks

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

this is all for software restriction under computer administrative templates

all other gpo apply to drive maps and printers- getting into user on local machine using run as shows they are not makeing faculty a member of the administrators group

What has me stumped is that you have

Apply software restriction policies to the following users All users except local administrators

Are the local admin groups updating properly

Mike KlineCommented:
Check your restricted groups GPO again, Florian has a great article here that may help

ok I have them in restricted group but my faculty group is on closer inspection a distribution group not security group -- I have a security group fac_security but I use this group to grant rights to dfs share if I use this group in restricted groups will it affect the dfs share access?
0
 
Mike KlineCommented:
No it won't affect the dfs share access, it will just add that group to the local admin group on the boxes
If you want to be safe create a new group, call it "Local admin installers"...or something like that
