Enabling local login

I'm trying to enable a local login for my old domain Administrator account on my Windows 2003 Server
system so I can run the ADMT with it.   The Local Security Settings box, where it would seem I should be
able to do this, has the "Add User or Group" button greyed out.

How do I actually do this?

Hi Patrick_Baldwin,

you need to edit the default domain controllers group policy

The neatest way to do it (and required for ADMT) is to add the Domain Admins group from the old domain to the domain local Administrators group on the new domain.

There seems to be a lot of confusion with ADMT lately.  You're not the only one that has asked about this.

Create or use a Domain Admin account from the source domain to run ADMT with on the target domain.


As long as the trust is in place and working you will be able to use the source domain account (which is necessary since you need local Admin rights over the workstations) to use the tool from the new domain.

-> the trust relationship itself doesn't grant permissions for users on the trusted domain. You'll still need to grant those permissions, for instance by adding groups from one domain to local groups in the other domain.

You're logged in on the target domain already - hopefully with Admin rights, and this is where you'll be running the tool from.  The trust allows you to use the source domain's DA account to fire the tool.
