I am trying to solve an issue that I think may be related to group policy. I am a desktop support analyst for a company and initially I was given "Domain Admin" privilges to install/configure software and hardware by the head network administrator. But here recently I have noticed that I can't install anything on my machine it says that the "requested operation requires elavation" or when I try to check the group polices editor(start, run gpedit.msc), it tells me that the Access is denied. Now I am running windows vista, but I still should be able to right click, shift and select "run as administrator" but still no go. I have Terminal Services into one of the servers to check my domain account and its not "locked out" and I am still part of the "domain admin" group, but I can't do rudimentary tasks. Is this some sort of cruel vista trick or is the Head Network Administrator restricting permissions because this company is trying to send a message to me. I will resign I can get another job but I need to know. Its frustrating because I even tried copying another network adminstrator's account with a dummy user account(no mailbox) attached ad login with that but still no success. When I asked the Head Network Administrator in person he said oh "I'll look into it" what kind of crap is that?
Anyways this could very well be a group policy restriction, but I would think that if it was then I would be able to do simple things!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
