Domain Admin Account not getting Domain Admin rights on 2008R2 Remote Desktop Server
Posted on 2014-02-04
I have two domain admin accounts that log into 3 remote desktop servers, on 2 of the servers they can see all printers that have a security setting to only allow users in a Printers_x group or Local domain admins.
On 1 of the remote desktop server, they can only see the printers if they are added directly to the printer. I have tried even adding domain admins to the printer and they still cant see it.
I have checked, doman admins are in local admins group.
I ran a whoami /groups /fo list as the user and it shows they are in the local administrator and domain administrator, but the printers still do not show up.
If I add the domain admin account to the Printers_x group, the printers show up.
It's like the Remote Desktop Server is not "seeing" that the user is a domain admin.
I have checked Local Policies Security Settings and they are the same.
I also have UAC the same on both machines.
