Re: Adding domain member to local admin group

Posted: 02-03-2007, 05:23 PM
Great tip: I just added my domain account as local administrator and bingo I
have the admin priveleges.

Then I noticed that by default domain admins were also assigned as local
administrator. ( I run small business server R2 +ISA )
So instead I added my domain account to the DOMAIN ADMIN user group.
