I am trying to set up a restricted administrator on my windows 2003 single domain, this users must not have the "domain admin" right but must be able to add local printers to a domain controller, I have  tried adding him to the following groups - "server operater" and "print operater".

Can someone please help?

thanks

You can't.  In order to add printers to a DC, you need to be Admin locally - since that's not possible on a DC you're in a pickle!

You can create a script that runs in the context of Domain Admin then encode it.  The quasi-admin can then use the script.
