My user security profile - Windows 7

Is there a place I can examine, or command I can run, to determine what level of security I have on my local machine and on my domain?

Am I a local admin?  A domain admin?

Hi,

If you run net user /domain <username> it will list.

Output like;

Local Group Memberships
Global Group memberships     *Domain Users

If you open a command prompt and run the following command it will tell you what domain security groups your user is a member of.
gpresult.exe /r

Open in new window

To get a list of local groups on the computer issue the following
net localgroup

Open in new window

To see a list of users in the local groups on the workstation issue the following command (requires local admin permissions)
net localgroup groupname

Open in new window

When I ran net user /domain <username
the local group memberships were completely blank.

the 'net user yourusername /domain' command will show you domain groups, not local groups.  Make sure you substitute your actual username in the command.
net user bobsmith /domain

Open in new window


gpupdate provides a nicer looking list if you ask me.

McSween:  Here's what I got when I ran gpupdate:

C:\Users\branton >gpupdate
Updating Policy...

User Policy update has completed successfully.

The following warnings were encountered during user policy processing:

This could be caused by Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service being disabled, stopped, or other WMI errors.

Sorry, I Meant GPResult /r like my first post says.  I've been doing group policy stuff today so I've got GPUpdate on the brain.

Looks like you are getting a WMI error.  That one is tricky to fix.  If it were one of my computers I wouldn't even try; I would just re-image it.
