Hi guys,
Hope you are all well and can help.

Scenario:

Single forest
Domain 1 (root)
Domain 2 (sub domain)


Domain administrator on machine A in Domain 2 is trying to install a backup agent from machine A to machine B (which is a domain controller in the root domain). He is a domain admin on machine B.

He gets insufficient privileges message.

I have added him to every group imaginable.
Local admins, enterprise admins, domain admins...you name it.

I can log on locally with this account to the problem machine.

I suspect UAC or some group policy, since this is an over the network logon and install.

What settings should I check to see if UAC is the cause of this?

Thank you guys.

Have you tried simply disabling UAC on that mashine? Check if the WMI service and simple file sharing are enabled in firewall settings.
