Windows 2008 R2 Administrator access denied from console


Domain Admins can not access files on local drive
File Properties box requires privilege elevation before permissions are displayed

UAC causes Domain Admins to be treated as non-privileged users, even when they are members of the local Administrators group.  This will prevent access to local drives when the EVERYONE group is removed from the root ACL.

Edit Group Policy setting
Computer Config\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security options
Run All Administrators in Admin Approval mode

Default: Enabled
Change: Disabled, to allow Admins access to local drives.

GPUpdate, Login or Reboot required for change to take effect
