Not able to add domain users to local XP administrators group

This seems stupid to ask, but for some reason on th is network (Win2000 server domain, 6 users) I have not been able to add a domain user or the domain users group to the local administrators group. And I notice that the Domain Admins group has not been added to the local admins group which I think normally happens when you join a domain (?). I've check the security policies on the server but did not find anything that appeared relevant.

The reason I am trying to do this is just to allow the users to install software, etc on the local system when they are logged into the domain. I'v done this succeffuly in the past, but if there is a better way, I am open...

Thanks in advance!

Try joining the computer to a workgroup (name it anything), and then restart.

Upon restart, try rejoining the computer to the domain.

Thanks,

Hi LTG,

How did you go about doing it? I am always eager to learn new ways of doing the same thing.
