Thanks for the prompt reply.
This was a client machine in the doamin and I did a fresh installation as
the old machine was busted.
Once I connect the machine to the domain it took the old member name and
I used the existing domain account to logged in. This is where I faced the
When I logged on to other machines using the same account I could do admin
tasks, But not when I looged in to this machine.
How ever I found a work around by adding this domain account as a member
of local admin group in the machine. That resolves the issue.
BUT the part I dont understand is in other machines this account can do admin
tasks with out addin the account as a member of local admin.
