    I have a fresh install of windows 2008 server and I have installed windows search. All updates have been installed. When using the search as the domain admin I receive “search failed to initialize” when I type anything in the search box.

    When logged in as the machine local admin the search works fine. I have deleted the profile for the domain admin and recreated it but search still fails. I have also added the domain admin to the local admin group to make sure that was not the problem.

    Does anyone know what the issue migth be?

    Thank you.


    edit: There are also a few more things that are not functioning properly as admin. Backup exec will crash when ran as domain admin but run ok as local admin. When I start cmd.exe and type “dir” command prompt will crash on me when doing this as domain admin but ok as local admin. It seems to be some odd permission issues but have no idea what it could be.
