Key applications/services: Active Directory, Domain controller, Terminal Services, Dentrix.
2 Servers running Win server 2003 standard.
Network Setup, server3 hosts database/application called Dentrix. Server4 hosts the client for Dentrix and is a terminal server so that remote users can access program. This client needs to be run as (minimum) poweruser when run on a "normal" desktop/server, easy. However, I have server4 running as a BDC. The only way I have been able to get the client software to run properly is to make those remote users administrators in AD, (AAAHHH)!!
I cannot make server3 a DC per the vendor, conflicts will arise. These are the only two servers at this site, my primary DC is at HQ (connectivity via PTP T1), my only other choice is to demote server4 and have no BDC, if I cannot find an alternative.
How do I emulate a poweruser for a user logging into a terminal server that is also a domain controller?
