  • Domain Admin Accounts

    Hi there

    I have a 2012 R2 server up and running. However, I am new to this version of server.

    I have created a user in the domain that I have added to the administrators group.

    If I log in on a Windows 7 Client with this user account and try and install software it asks me for the administrator username and password.

    I then have to type in the Server administrator details to proceed.

    I have only ever created a administrative user in the past on previous versions of Server and this has worked on the clients when new software needs to be installed.

    How can I do this on 2012R2 ??

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to add that account to the local administrator group on the client. UAC will pop up but a confirmation click is all that will be needed.

      Like blood said, either the domain-level administrator needs to have local administrative permissions (which you can do using GPO)

      Or, it's possible that UAC is configured in such a way that even as a full DA/EA, you still need to provide passwords to UAC
