Security Permissions - System Partition Question

Specs: Windows 2008 R2
Hi All,

I'm looking to lock down the security permissions of the system partition of a newly built server. What would people recommend?

I'm looking also to have it locked down so somebody who logs in as a local admin on a system cannot access it without prompting for credentials.

Don't give out any local admin accounts, have all your log-ins be AD accounts then use your Group Policy to limit the privileges.

The question indicates a shortage of understanding about server security.
What do you think you are protecting by this request?

System should only contain the boot files and is not recommended to be used for anything else.

Last person to post about locking out local admins cut off all admin access to the server which required a reload of the entire system from scratch.

A local admin wouldn't have any reason to browse to or alter the system partition.
If you trust them to be local admin there is no reason to restrict them.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
