    Yes, as what u have said. Add the Domain Users to the Local Administrators Group Locally.

    It means, give Administrative Rights on thier Machine Only.

      Not quite. It means: give users Administrative rights on their machine... and that of everyone else!! If that is what you want I have much simpler solution. Add Everyone to Domain Admins. (I'm joking, I'm joking!!!!)

          Hi guys

          thanks for replying my topic.

          guys , I know that if I add the users to the local administrators group , the problem will be solved. but how could I do that, there are over 400 client machine.
          and by the way , I know it is not a best practice to do this , but at least for the short term untill we find a proper solution.

          again, my problem that I need to give my users administrative privillage on their machines.

          thanks alot for 7abibalby and wkasdo.

          regards
