Hi,

Can someone let me know how to configure a Windows 2003 domain user as a
local administrator on a XP Professional client. I have set the same user ID
up for the user on the local PC with administrator rights and when I log into
the PC locally this works fine. When I log into the PC as a domain user the
user has user rights and not local Administrator.

I have been trying to do this for days and some help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Neil

It sounds like you created a local user,
You need to go to Users and Groups in compute management, go to groups,
select administrators, click add, and then change The Computer Name at the
top to the name of your domain, and then browse through the list there until
you find the user you want to add.

Dave,

Thanks for quick reply. I have tried your suggestion (on my PC as
Administrator) but I don't have the domain available in the Locations
selection - only my PC. I suspect this means there is a more fundamental
problem.

I'm logged onto the domain as an Administrator (e.g. the Domain name is in
the bottom box in the login form) and can see the domain in My Network
Places. I can't understand why it is not offered in the Locations option.

Also, from the server when I try to manage users on the local box (via Manage
Computer in Server Management) and select Users I get "Access is Denied".

I suspect this might be relevant.

Logging in the domain and joining the computer to the domain are not the
same thing. Check in Active Directory to see if the computer is listed.

Kerry,

Thanks for comment. Computer is listed in Active Directory on the server.

You could try removing it from the domain, and then rejoining it,

You are going about it from the wrong angle. In local computers and groups
open Administrators, then click on add. Change the location to the domain.
Add the domain user e.g. DOMAIN\domain_user or even DOMAIN\domain_group. You
need to add the domain user to the local administrator group.

Kerry,

I have tried this but the domain is not offered in the Locations selection
and if I type it in (e.g. DOMAIN\USER) , it is rejected.
