  • Local Administrator rights

    Hi All,

    After upgrading clients t​o Windows 10 the Local Administrator settings of Small Business Server 2011 have no affect anymore. Does anybody know why?

    Thanks,

    Alberto

    Group Policy won't have settings applicable to W10 clients. There might be a manual fix for this, very much doubt Microsoft will patch it though given SBS 2011 is the last of it's breed.

      I'm looking at least for a manual fix. In Win8 it was working.

        What local administrator settings are you trying to use? Group membership or setting the password?

        If you're trying to set the admin password through group policy, that is no longer supported as it was a huge security hole. I think you'll find that earlier versions of Windows will no longer work this way either since it has been patched.

        Here's a blog post explaining the old way and how it can now be solved. http://blogs.technet.com/b/askpfepla...-password.aspx

          I go to SBS2011 Standard Console -> select User & Groups -> select user Marcello -> Edit user account Properties -> Computers and I change for the specified machine from "Standard User" to "Local Administrator".

            Ah, I see, This setting basically updates group policy. The setting might not be compatible with Windows 10 or the policy might not be applying for some reason (maybe WMI filter...)

                Surely restricted groups in a GPO will still work?
