      Using Samba 4.7.4 on 6 Ubuntu 14.04 as DC's. Recently noticed
applications were failing to install on Windows 10 and 7
workstations. Started to investigate and noticed the Administrator
account could not install software.  The Domain Admins appear to work
as normal with full domain rights. As a test I logged in to a Windows
10 workstation as Administrator and invoked a command prompt with
'Run as Administrator'. Attempted to run 'ipconfig /registerdns' I
get the prompt about needing to run with administrative privileges.

Not entirely sure where to start to see if this is a Samba or Windows
issue. Anyone have a list of what group memberships the Administrator
should be a part of by default? Thanks.

On my DC, Administrator is a member of:

Domain Admins, Administrators, Enterprise Admins, Group Policy Creator
Owners, Schema Admins

Have you checked if Administrator is disabled on the affected machines,
or if its password has expired ?


Thanks. That solved it. Administrator was not part of Domain Admins any longer.
