Admin user rights not working.

I have a user that has domain administrator rights.   They had domain user rights under our SBS 2003 server that worked properly.  When we upgraded to the 2008 SBS server the rights never fully worked after that time.  Some items work and some don't.  I have removed the admin rights from the user and then re-applied them with the same response.

If I remove the user the user and re-add the user, will they still get the same profile on their workstations and on their email account? I know the is different so they would have to have their group memberships etc. re-set.  

Thank you.

If you remove the user and re-add the user, backup their profile on the workstation that they already authenticated too.  Delete that profile on the local workstation, their email should be on the server.  Plus do you try authenticating with the user account that is in questioned and

Open an cmd prompt with elevated privileges

Type gpupdate /Force to force the policy.

comfortjeanius;

The problem has been long enough that these machines would have been through generations of group policy updates - but I will also try the gpudate.

As for the other part -
After having logged on then I just copy the old profile to the new users correct? Or can I just rename the backed up profile?

Thank you.

If you delete and create a new account, you will lose the profile. You can use a tool like Windows easy transfer to backup and import most of the profile settings.

You will have to attach the mailbox to the new account. That isn't a trivial process. It is easy to accidentally delete the mailbox when you delete the account. So be cautious there too.

You can rename it or back it up.  Reason for this b/c of the user settings and permissions that are allocated.
