UAC does not function RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am comparing two identically configured Windows server 2016 machines.  The only role installed is Hyper-V. 

    One server has a UAC prompt when opening labeled control panel items and settings - for example "manage shadow copies".

    The other server does not.  The server without UAC crashes during Windows Server Backup.  I am trying to troubleshoot and would like to know where to begin.  Both servers are domain joined and apply the same group policy.  GPresult /r lists the working server in the group " Authentication authority asserted identity" where the problem server does not.

    I was unable to add the server account to that group.  net group does not detect that the group exists.  I have run SFC /ScanNow with no problems found.

    I tried disabling UAC and enabling it again.  I searched the event viewer for the cause of the crash and did not find anything.
