Last Modified: 2020-03-24
I have a remote user who I need to add his domain loigin to the local administrators group. I connected via VPN using my credentials but each time I try to add his user, the domain could not be contacted. What do I need to do to allow me to connect him to the domain and then add his user to the admin group on the computer....or even user group so he can login with that domain login?
