    NT Local Administration

    I have been designated as a local administrator for our department. The IT administrator added me to the appropriate administrator groups, but it still seems as if I don't have any administrator rights. He said that he will have to go to each machine and manually add me to the group from the machines that I am administrator for? Is there an easier way to do this?

    Re: NT Local Administration

    Usually in a NT environment, every machine has an administrator account which has user or group accounts within it. There should be a group admin acct on your domain which should also be in the administrator group on the machines. All he has to do is add you to the domain group and as long as the wrkstns are setup correctly, you should have admin rights./

    Re: NT Local Administration

    He has me added to the domain group as the local administrator, but the workstations don't "see" that group. He says it has to be setup manually, and it is something they will do before they issue the next machine.

    So I guess from what you are saying, the workstations are not setup correctly. Where can I find reference material to learn more about this to be able to share with him.?

    Thanks for your quick response.

    Yea, it sounds like the wrkstns aren't set up correctly. As far as documentation, it's a 'known' thing but i guess you can get it from any NT book under 'accounts'
