Windows 7: Active Directory User and Computers

30 Oct 2009   #11

Windows 7

When i Ran As Different User and entered my Domain Admin account it failed - this was due to my Domain Admin account not having permissions on the MMC - even though my Domain Admin account was added to my Local Administrators Group which did have Permissions to the MMC

Tested this with a different Domain Admin account which failed also..

Anyway - added my Admin account and it works fine

You have to use a domain account with privileges to do those tasks. You cant use a local admin account thats just on your local computer and think it will work.

I was using a Domain admin account to run AD - and that account was part of my Local Admin group - which was specified to run th MMC - but it was not running correctly

I had to add the Domain admin account to the Security permissions of the MMC so it would run - even though my Domain Admin account was a member of a group which had the correct permissions to run the MMC

With me..
