Hi list,

I have this server, Windows 2000 Server running SQL Server.  It's a
member server, not a DC.  In the local administrators group, the
following members are listed:

Domain\Domain Admins

When I log in as me, a domain admin, I have full admin rights.  When I
log in as Domain\SQLAgentUsername, I do not.  The quick way that I test
to see if a user has admin rights is by right clicking the start button
and seeing if the "explore all users, open all users" options are there.
They are not.  Also, I just installed Outlook on this server (while
logged in as me), and when I went to run it for the first time while
logged in as Domain\SQLAgentusername, it told me that I needed admin
rights to run it the first time.

Okay, so although this user is in the local administrators group, he
doesn't seem to be an administrator.  What could be preventing this user
from being an administrator when he is in the admins group?

Thanks a lot!
