I have two Dell servers. One is DC and the other is a member server.

It was working fine a few days before I had a problem when I was logging in a member server with the domain administrator account. It doesn't have permission to install anything. Even when I create a new domain admin account the same thing happens.

  1. Check Group Policy on your domain to ensure there is no policy preventing installations that's being applied to your member server.
  2. Verify that 'Domain Admins' group is a member of the local administrator group on the server.
  3. If UAC is enabled on the member server, start your installations with right click -> Run as administrator.
  4. Verify that Enhanced IE Security Configuration is not blocking the content you wish to install.
