Add domain user permission to use Local System account in service
Posted on 2014-04-03
I have a program that installed a service and a program onto a Windows 2008R2 server. The service is set up with the Log On tab set to Log on as: Local System account.
When I log onto the server as the user that I did the install with (domain/administrator) I can run the program with no problems. If I log on as a different domain/admin account, the program gives me an access error.
I don't know how the Local Accounts work with Windows (obviously), but is there a way to add the security group "Domain Admins" to the Local System account?
The software company hasn't been helpful with their responses, but they said I could change the radio button from Local System to This account: and specify a username/password. But, I can only add a user, not a group. So how can I add all domain admins to that user account so any administrator can run the program?
