Creating a network right

In the preceding section, you saw how you can provide a user with a desktop that has elevated privileges on a local computer (the Windows client computer in this case). However, using administrative privileges on your local Windows client computer does not give you privileges on a remote computer. In this section, you create a network access right that gives a user administrator privileges on a remote computer.

To illustrate network access rights using the local Windows client computer and a remote computer, you must install the Centrify agent for Windows on the remote computer and join that remote computer to the zone you created in Creating the first zone (for example, Headquarters).

You can use the domain controller or another computer as the remote computer for this exercise. Install the Centrify agent for Windows on the computer that you are using as the remote computer and join that computer to the Headquarters zone before proceeding.

If you are using only one Windows client computer for the evaluation and cannot install the agent on the domain controller or another remote computer, you should skip this exercise.
