My account is in administrators group, but doesn’t honor permissions for administrators group on remote share

file managementfile-permissionsnetwork-sharesuacuser-profiles

I am on a home network and not using a domain controller. My username is in the administrators group and I have UAC turned on. I have a share on a network computer that has certain rights for users of the administrators group (the group itself has permissions). However, I find that it is not honoring those permissions, but have to explicitly add my username to this ACL in order to have access.

Why won't this work, since both usernames are under an administrators group? Does this not matter the group when accessing a remote share or does it only authenticate at the user level? Thanks.

The most restrictive permissions are followed. So if there is a denied for your account, but allowed for administrators, you will be denied.
