I have many users in my company domain (mycompany.org) who are using Dell laptops running Windows 7 Professional.
I am using Windows Server 2008 R2 as a domain controller. On priority, my users need to enable / disable their network adapter (it's a requirements of the organization). Currently, the system denies them this privilege without an administrator password. A prompt is displayed every time to request credentials when trying to do this.
Is there a way to give them permission to enable / disable their network adapter requiring an administrator password?
Steps that I have already taken are:
My domain user (student13) running Windows 7 Professional on a laptop was added to the user group
Network Configuration Operatoron the Domain controller.
On the domain controller, a GPO with
Ability to enable/disable a LAN Connectionset to
The created GPO above was linked to an OU that contains the users who needs to enable / disable their network adapter.
I believe what I need to do is make sure that my users are part of the
Network Configuration Operators user group. This group enables the privileges to be delegated to the users so that they can manage the configuration of networking features.
I have tried all the possible solutions. But still, my users are not able to enable / disable their network adapter. A screen to provide credentials appears every time.
