I'm not quite sure what went wrong, or what's missing.
I have a domain user account which I added to the built-in Administrators group.
I am expecting that this Domain user has administrative privileges on a computer that's logged in the domain.
I log in using that user but whenever I perform something that requires administrative rights, Windows prompts me for a username/password.
I try to use the user account that I added to the Administrators group but Windows does not accept it.
It does, however, accept the built-in domain administrator user account to grant me access.
Why does my domain user account not have admin privileges even though it already belongs to the Administrators group?
The PC that I used to log in the domain is newly formatted, with newly installed OS.
Therefore, there should be no funky local settings that could have caused this.
edit: specified built-in domain administrator account, NOT the local administrator account.
