Domain Admins require elevation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm having this issue after a fresh install of Windows 10:

    1. Fresh Installed

    2. Added to domain

    3. Domain Admins don't get admin privileges

    I can't figure out why this workstation won't allow me to perform admin tasks with a domain admin account, I can't disable UAC all together as that doesn't fly with company policy, I've made sure domain admins are in the Administrators group and I've even tried to enable/disable the “Admin Approval for built-in Administrator” local policy to no avail.

    Does anybody have any ideas as to why this is happening on this one workstation and how to fix it?

  • Figured it out...Seems like someone had changed the Domain Admin group to not include the security groups it used to.
