    Hello there guys. I have a question: i'm doing some test with windows server 2016 and the active directory service. After the installation of AD service role and promoted the server to a domain controller i can login without problems with the builtin administrator account but that account seems to doesn't have the privilege to do other things like, for example, personalization. I already configured the restricted group in the GPO but it doesn't work with the administrator account while it's working for new users which are not the built in administrator. So the question is: is there any way to grant to the built in administrator of the domain controller the local admin rights or i'm forced to create a new user? I hope i've explained it clearly. Thank you!

    And why would you bother or care about personalization for administrator account?
    It surely is not the account that you are going to be using for anything!
