How do I go about this.  I want to add the computer1\administrator account to the local admin group of computer2.  I dont see the option to do it.

Both computers are on a windows 200 active directory domain and are windows 2003 std edition member servers.

Right click on my computer and go to manage.  Go to Local Users and Groups.  Go to the Administrators Group (Do this on computer 2).  Double click on the Administrators group and go to Add.  On location, if all computers are part of the same domain make sure that domain name is entered in the location.  If they are not part of the same domain but are in the same forest, browse to the location.  Enter the administrator name.  You will be prompted for a username and password.  That should do it for you.

I don't believe there is a way to do what you are asking.  The easiest way is to allow their domain account administrator access to the pc.  So you add domain\theirusername to the local administrators group on the local machine.

You're going to run into all sorts of problems using local accounts to log in to domain machines.

One thing you could do is create a domain user, add it to the local admin group of the other pc, and use the right click, run-as option to run the application without actually logging in as the domain user.
