Experts,

Seems to never end...

So, I have a couple Windows 7 Pro clients on my network who can't see Domain Admins or Administrators group in Select Users. I have Users and Groups selected when doing this. No issues with my other clients, though. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Please clarify what you would like to see after clicking "select users". Normally, admins are not seen there as they are entitled to rdp login via another policy.

I would like to see Domain Admins, like I do with every other client.

How do you deploy the privilege listed there? Domain admins are not explicitely listed by default as they are part of the local admins group.

Sorry, I'm not following. I can RDP into all but two of my clients. When I go to the client to check Remote Desktop settings, no one is listed as authorized to remote into the PC except, by default, the Administrator. When I try to add Domain Admins, it doesn't find that group. The only admin it sees is one other user that has admin privileges. Let's call him adm_barry@help.me.

I see, now I finally get it.
So you browse for users but have no choice but adm_barry? is adm_barry@help.me a domain account (I think so)? In the add user dialog you need to select the domain name as location where to look for user names. Is that selected?
What happens if you manually enter adminname@yourdomain.com (or ...@help.me if that is your domain)?

Yes, and adm_barry@help.me is a domain account. I have made sure that my domain was selected when searching for users. I have not tried manually entering any names.

Then try it. Should of course work via browsing, but worth a try.

I mean, I tried manually entering Domain Admins, which is something I need, but it pops up the advanced search window because it doesn't recognize Domain Admins.

To be sure I get you right: username@help.me does not work?

Ok, I'm not sure what happened, but my two workstations can see Domain Admins, etc., now. Might have been temporarily off network after they logged in or something funky. Thanks for all your help, though!

You're welcome.
If that browsing does not work, LDAP access is not possible, often due to DNS problems or I general network connectivity problems.
