question Admin account limited by default policy Server 2008
  

I have installed a Windows server 2008 domain. I am useing Group policy to limit domain users. The problem is that the admin user gets the same limitation! How can i fix this problem? I have a seperate admin GPO, but I donīt know if the admin is in that GPO or not.

Please help!

Re: Admin account limited by default policy Server 2008

This looks that the policy which are setting for the users also applies to the admin. This can be due to group issue. Check that the Admin lies in the same group where other users are and you are applying settings for the entire group. There is a detailed link attached below which provides a guide for this process.
  • Log on your Domain Controller and check that Active Directory lies in Native Mode.
  • No in Active Directory > User & Computer > Create a Global Security Group. Name it as admins. Add the users in that who will get admin rights.
  • In the same you can create another group which do not have admin rights and add user in them.
  • Manage the permission settings and thats all.
