I'm logged as domain admin on Windows Server 2016 (server member of my domain). I create a second NTFS partition (e:) and I remove access to the local users group (I dont want non-domain admin access to e:). I create a folder test at the root of e:

test inherit ACL from the parent (e:).

From Explorer.exe, directly on the server, when I try to enter on test, I get a security popup. If I accept: a new ACE is created with my account on test. I discarded. I don't have problem with the local administrator account.

PS E:\> (Get-Acl e:\).Access

If I don't remove access to local users group at e:, I don't get prompted to access to test cause the ACE with my name is created automatically.

The effective access tab show my account have full control, inherited from parent folder, to the local administrators group.

From another computer on the domain, with my domain admin account, i can access without security popup to \\fileserver\e$\test (without ACE of my name).

The question is, how every domain admins can access files locally, without create individual ACE for every domain admins account ?

User Account Control restricts Explorer's ability to make direct use of the user's membership of certain groups, including the Administrators local group and the Domain Admins global group.

However, this restriction only applies to certain special groups, and in particular it does not apply to groups that contain those groups. This means that you can resolve your problem by creating a global group in the domain called, say, "My Domain Admins" and add the Domain Admins group as a member of My Domain Admins.

If you then grant My Domain Admins full permission to the E drive, all members of the Domain Admins group will be have full access to that drive when logged in locally.
