Create an domain account that have right to local administrator only

Currenlly all desktop support engineer have administrator account to local computer.
The administrator password is a local admin password.
example:
logon                          : administrator
pass                           : xxxxxx
localCompute              r: comp1   to comp100

Can I create an account in DOMAIN  that have local admin right.
The account SHOULD HAVE LOCALADMIN  RIGHT BUT NOT ANY SERVER RIGHT
How do I assign this group in active directory?

The purpose of this exercise is  to allow centralization of password so I can easily can change the local administrator password.

Create a global group "DesktopAdmins" or whatever, add the engineers to this group.
Create a GPO and link it to an OU in which (only) the machines are that you want those users to have administrative permissions on.
In this GPO, define a "Restricted Groups" policy for the Administrators group, in which you only add the Administrator account, the Domain Admins group, and the DesktopAdmins group.
This makes sure the engineers don't add other accounts to the administrators group (or at least not for long ...)
