A built-in group for the Microsoft Windows 2000 operating system platform. Enterprise Admins is one of four predefined global groups that Windows 2000 creates by default to help administrators organize users in their network. The other three groups are Domain Users, Domain Guests, and Domain Admins.
While Domain Admins are those users who can perform administrative tasks on any computer belonging to the domain, the Enterprise Admins group is intended to have an even larger scope. Enterprise Admins need to be able to perform administrative tasks on any computer in the enterprise.
A Windows 2000–based enterprise can consist of a number of domains interconnected in a domain tree, or even several domain trees connected into a domain forest.
Enterprise Admins can administer the entire network for the enterprise. Just as with the Domain Admins group, the Enterprise Admins group has one initial member: the Administrator user account that belongs to the local domain.
