Hi,

We have a user that is unable to open IIS manager on Windows 2003.
He's part of the Administrators group - I understand that he won't get full admin access.

Here's the problem with IIS.
User is connected via RDP to the server.
Opens IIS manager and gets this error message:
THe snap-in below, referenced in this document has been restricted by policy. Contact your administrator for details. Internet information Services (IIS) Manager.

Is there a way to fix this?
Is there something that I can deactivate in the GPO?

Thanks,

What makes you think someone in the Administrator's group isn't a full admin? How else would they become a full admin?

Also, I'd look through the user's groups and check the GPO objects set for them. If he's in a restricted group and a non-restricted group (like Admins) the restrictive one will apply.

Hi,

I have no access to the domain controller, I won't be able to edit the GPO from there.


I went to the GPO Editor on the server but couldn't find restricted group.
Can this be done from the server?

Thanks for your time,

What I don't understand is that they are both members of the same group , but one is unable to open IIS.
I tried with my regular account and added myself to the same group and I'm also having trouble.
