    adding pc to a domain without admin rights

    There is a setup with us with 2 domain controllers running on Standard Server 2003. One of our users have added his computer to our domain. This user does not have domain admin rights. If I am trying with my own user I am not able to do this. The user claims he only used his own username/password. How can this be possible? Thanks.

    You need to check the domain controllers policy and all others by going into Computer configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > User rights assignment and then in the right pane "Add workstations to Domain".

    Check the article made on "Error message when non-administrator users who have been delegated control try to join computers to a Windows Server 2003-based or a Windows Server 2008-based domain controller: "Access is denied" from here - to solve your issue.
