log on as admin to the local computer that you want to give admin access to.
Add the user to the Local Administrators Group
Right click on "My computer" and select "manage"
Expand local users and groups
Expand groups
Expand the administrators group and click ADD
Enter the domain user eg domain\username

and OK all the way out

On the server you want the user to be be admin on"

Place the following command in a logon script -> "net localgroup
administrators OLDDOMAIN\User1 /add > NUL" watch the wrap and without the
quotes.
