You need to make user that you have added your administrator account to the Group "domain admins" and then added "domain Admins" to the local "administrators" group on each machine.
This will happen automaticallt when the machines are joined to the domain.

If you dont have a domain that you cannot add a user from one machine to the administrators group on another - you have to create new users on each machine with the same username and password.
