Can't properly add local admins with Group Policy
Posted on 2011-03-03
I'm trying to give a handful of users Local Admin rights on all machines at an office. I have created a group on the server (Server 2003 R2) and added a few members to it. I created a GPO and set up Restricted Groups... i configured the Administrator group and added the group I created earlier.
Now when I log onto a workstation (XP or Windows 764 bit) , I go to view the users and my group is not listed. I then go to the Advanced tab, click on the Advanced button and when I go to Groups and Select Administrators, the group I created IS a member.
However when I log on to the machine as one of the members of that group, they still do not have Local Admin rights.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
