Hey everyone. So I am helping out a local office here in town and they have 2 separate servers. One is running 2008 and the other is 2003. I am still not quite sure why they are running two separate versions yet but I am slowly finding out over time.
So the majority of the users log on to the domain. The domain is called DNSParts. There is a few separate accounts that each users logs into; there's kyle, dnparts1, dnparts2, and david. Now when I go into the DNSParts server I noticed that AD was not installed. So I went into computer managment and went into the Groups and Local users (i think that was what it was called) and none of the users mentioned before are there. There is like "sys2kemail, administrator," and other admin type accounts. I am not there at the moment so I can't remember precisely (should have taken notes) but I am pretty confused about this. If you go into computer management > shared folders > sessions then there is a tab called "users" and you can see all the users I am looking for but you can't modify anything. You can only end the session.
Can anyone help me out with this? I am trying to give each user permission to take ownership of the hosts file so I can modify the hosts file and block websites.
**EDIT, I am not sure if AD is not installed or if for some odd reason it is hidden***
