Hello and thank you for reading this thread. I am currently running Remote Desktop Connection on my Macbook, running OS X 10.6.8. Remote Desktop is version 2.1.0. When I use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to my Windows Server 2008 R2 server, logon, I do not have real full administrator rights. Even though, I am logged on as administrator. I go over to my Windows machine, and connect via RDP to the Windows Server 2008 R2 server, and logon as administrator. I now have full access rights as a proper administrator. Therefore, I am sure this must be something related to the Remote Desktop Connection for Mac that I am using. Does anyone have any thoughts?

Hmmm...I've never experienced this behavior before when remoting into a server from a Mac. Maybe try updating your Remote Desktop to 2.1.1?
