We have some Windows Server 2008 R2 systems with an issue that I can't seem to figure out. When I log in with an AD account that belongs in the local Administrators group (and no other local groups), I do not see any of the local drives listed in Windows Explorer. I can type the drive letters in the run box and they will open and I have full access - but I can't figure out why they are hidden in Explorer. Additionally, the start menu does not show options for Shutdown or Reboot.
When I log in with a local administrator account, everything is behaving normal. It would appear that there is something in AD that is causing this, but I can't figure out what it is. Any ideas?
