Thanks a lot. Can you please let me know what are the types of users account can a server have? Like admin account / domain account, etc.

If I create one domain account and provide him admin privilege. Can the user install any application like a user can do?

This was helpful and I did everything there, but when I try to login to the new account on the users computer, I get “There is currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.” What am I missing? Our IT guy quit leaving me to support something I know nothing about.
