gaining admin rights
I'm am mostly posting this out of frustration , and this is a noisy keyborad, my typing now is probably being heard two doors down!
I am working temporarily , for a very large employer ( you'll have heard of them ) in a desktop capacity. I do all admin by logging into eah pc as local administrator.
I would much rather they pushed out an AD group into each machines administrators group and put my account in the AD group . This is because logging in as local admin only:
- you are not authenticated to anything
- no drives are mapped
the ball ache this causes is unbelievable , the amoutn of times i have to type my AD password in to get to a resource...
It also makes some tasks that should be transparent pretty much impossible such as remotely reading event logs or reading anything from AD.
I suggested the simple , elegent and probably industry standard solution above and got "well we've never heard of that" . At which point yougive up. Threres no point suggesting somthing so glaringly obvious, with the amoutn of OK ing that would have to come from all corneres all the way up the tree.
I'd just seem like some meddling newcomer saying "this would work much better if you put that there"
I just have to live with it
I'm investingating various tedious workarounds
