NT Network Admin Problems

  Alien463 14:15 03 Mar 2003

Hello. My friend is runnning a Windows 2000 Network (built on NT technology) and needs some help.

He heard somewhere that it is possible to upgrade a user account into an admin account, and was wondering how this was possible, and what actions to take to do this.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Alien463, open the users account, select properties. Look for the tab named "Member of" from here you can add the user to any of the accounts that are listed.

Hi. Thanks for the advice.

However, I was referring to upgrading a normal user account into the admin group.

Is it possible to add a common user account into the admin group by using features only accessible in a normal account? I have heard that there is a program that is able to upgrade user accounts into admin status, and wanted some information on it. Thanks again.

Alien463, I use W2K and have 6 OUs, which hold around 300 users. I can pic any one of these users and upgrade their account status to an Adminstrator, Account Operator etc, by the process of my description above.
