Hi

i get the following message when i try to install software or printers on a client PC/laptop under a administrator/Domain admin account

"To install the software, you must log on as a member of the Administrators group"

when i try to change local admin rights, not allowed, or for example change RDP settings on client, all options are greyed out

its like the domain admin account is having no effect when logged into client

any ideas?

thanks in advance

Log in locally and see which users/groups are in the Local Administrators group. It is possible to remove the Domain Admins group from the Administrators group on a domain system, and doing so would exhibit the  symptoms you're seeing.
