    Hi All

    I have a problem, while the late network admin was employed he put into place some fairly strict permissions on the network, TOO strict to be honest. We have just set up a machine for a remote user and set it up so that he can dial into the network, the problem starts when he trys to add his local printer in that ....he cant due to the permissions that the machine pickup when it was joined to the domain during the setup procedure, I have tried adding the user to the domain admin group and told him to dial in again hopeing that it would pick up the new permission for this group and allow him to add his local printer and i could them remove him from the domain admins group. This, alas, did not work :hhhmmm :confused2 :confused3 .

    Anyone got ant ideas please.

    The only thing I can come up with is that the mchine account is having a Group Policy applied to it where

    Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options > Prevent Users from installing Printer Drivers

    is enabled.

    If you had an XP machine with the Group Policy Management Console installed you could easily check this :)

    Bonsoir,
    adding the user to the domain admin group isn't a good idea I think ,using NTFS advanced permissions is by far wiser... that said checking for any GP group policy that might exist for that object might be what you are looking for .

    Nelix - Try analysing your current security settings with the basic template, this will show you where all of the current settings have been changed, from here you should be able to pick up where the problem is. Not only that if
    "late network admin was employed he put into place some fairly strict permissions on the network, TOO strict to be honest."

    It will also give you a rundown of where probs. may occur in the future

    Just an idea
