    What if you're wanting to manage AV and backups of a DC, and these applications require local admin rights? How do you provide this on a DC without making it a Domain admin?

    Tell Service Birmingham that. Not only is it their practice, if you spend ages playing around with permissions for their backup account and remove it from domain admins, they put it back and tell you it's unsupported.

    I can't remember the exact bus but watch this, Ten Deadly Sins of Administrators about Windows S…: http://youtu.be/wo7o81VhvVA well with watching anyway, I think it's in this video but might be another of hers. There should be something in there you can use.

    Install the admin tools in a client and check who else is a member of domain admins, also you can check what the username is then.

    This has worked a treat. I created a WinPE bootable and added the appropriate RAID drivers, and followed the presenters instructions. Its deadly sin number 9 about a third of the way in. Definitely worth watching.

    It is scary, hence the first rule of it is lock the doors and bolt the windows. If you can sit infront of something and physically touch it you can hack it
