I have created a test lab according to the microsoft test lab documentation. TEST LAB DOC

I have created DC1.
Created Domain Admin User1 in ADUC.
Created App1 and had it join the domain with user1 credentials.
Now whenever I log into App1 as User1 I have no rights whatsoever.
I can't make any changes, I can't ping anything (unable to contact ip driver).
If i log in with local admin acct, everything works fine.

what am I missing?

Check the local administrators group on App1 - see if domain admins are listed as members of that group.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I deleted the user1 and user2 profiles. Now when I login I get the error:
"you have been logged on with a temporary profile" with both of these users.

ok, got it.

Go to registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ ProfileList

and delete all keys end with .bak

try remove and rejoin the domain.

if still it not works, login as local admin and remove the "domain admin" group from "local administrator" group and readd.

rejoined and same issue.
Domain admin does not show up in local admin, even though when I try to add it says it is there already.

Seems you did not run sysprep /generalize for your template to ensure that a new SID is being generated for each created VM instance.

pls run and check.
