Hi Experts.

I have set up a SBS 2011 Server with a small number of workstations attached.
The users on these workstations are set up on the Domain as “Standard Users” but were set up on the local workstation as Administrators.

What appears to be happening now is that they are being removed from the local workstation User Accounts list completely.

While they can still sign on they appear to have very limited rights on the local workstation.

This is obviously something to do with Group Policy Editor but I know very little about that.

The main reason that I need to have users set as administrators on their local machines is because an accounts package they use requires it.

Your assistance gratefully appreciated.

Regards Heber.
