Server 2008r2 Builtin Groups issue

Hi All,

We have a server 2008r2 box that has recently been promoted to a DC.  This is a small remote site and there is an IT gent who comes into that office X amount time a week, since this is such a small office this box is also running DNS, DHCP and is a file server too.

Strangely the consultant appears to have no rights to this machine or at least very little. His account is a member of the Builtin group server operators which should give sufficient rights to create shares etc but it does not, it does on another server 2008r2 Dc that we have in the organisation. The issues does not appear to be limited to the server operator group, being a member if the print operator group also does not give me him rights to add printers on the machine too.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

since promoted do DC, the valid group would be the Active Directory ones, instead of the local ones.

Thanks x-men, but these groups are Active Directory ones. They can be found in the Builtin container and provide administrative permissions to the DC's.

As i said above the group supplies the correct permissions on another server 2008r2 DC.

There was no real help from community so continued to troubleshoot issue myself on my test server.
