User rights higher than admin? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've changed user account settings and now in many cases (including gpEdit) I get an error message "For this operation higher user rights are needed" (it is coming in Hungarian so this is just and approx. translation). When the system asks for Uid and password I of course submit my admin Uid and Psw, and I am not aware of anything higher. This is crasy...What can I do?

  • Hi,
    Please ensure that the account you used is member of the "Administrator" group. Please right click on "Computer" and select to "Manager" to open "Computer Management". Please find "local users and group" - "users" and then right click on the account you used to check which group it belongs to.
    Hope it helps.

    Best regards,
