I have a new SBS 2011, with domain users and computers.

In the SBS Console, I go to properties of the user and under computers I choose a computer for each user and i make him a local administrator and offcorse by default it will give remote access.

when I go to the computer and logged in with the user name that is supposed to be local administrator, it doesnt show that its a local admin, so i need to put a network admin password to install any program or to change the setting.

Also when i go to the remote work place, under computers, i see the computer for the user, but when i try to connect to it using the local administrator details, it doesnt allow the user to connect to it.

i restarted the server and the computers but nothing has been changed

so i am giving local admin access level to the users but its not working

please help and thanks in advance,
