Admin account not recognised as admin

Copper Contributor

I have a machine that is joined to Intune/Entra, and it looks like it has been joined up correctly and is fully compliant with policies we have in place.


The issue I'm having is that when I run a program as administrator, it comes back with the message that "The requested operation requires elevation", as if the account is not the admin. However, I know that the account works as admin on every other machine in my tenant and is the admin account I used to enroll this machine into my tenant.


Its a Windows 10 22H2 machine, that I am now looking to upgrade to Win 11, that I had to restore the OS on using the Dell Support Recovery platform.


Any help is greatly appreciated.
