Hi Experts,

I have an AD with users, all the users belong to the domain users group only, if i log one of these users onto an XP pc and goto control panel and user accounts and add the user on here as an administrator, will this give the user full domain admin rights right across my domain, or will it give the user full admin rights to the pc only.

    rjwesley is correct.  You are adding the domain user to the local administrators group.
