Add new hardware won't work


Rob Kerner

I recently configured domain security policy, and now
when logged on as the domain admin, I get the message
that I do not have the rights to install hardware. This
happened when I did my first DC in win2k many moons ago,
but I can't find the policy restricting me from
installing. As I recall it wasn't a policy telling me I
couldn't install, but one that wasn't defined letting me
install. Any clues?

Hi Rob,

Make sure you have the driver signing policy set to the appropriate level,
Ignore, Warn or Block. This would not be the cause / issue if you're using
digitally signed drivers. Check out Q298503 - Driver Signing Registry
Values Cannot Be Modified Directly in Windows

If we look at the SETUPAPI.LOG does it mention a policy / error message that
can help us narrow this down?
