We have a Windows 2003 member server, we need to give local admin rights to this server for a support company to access, however we dont want them to have admin rights on our DC or other member servers.

Help, not sure how I can do this.

    As long as the system itself is not a DC go to Computer Management and create a local account for the support company.  Then add that account to the local administrators group.

    Why is this being closed and only awarding me 20% of the points?  I SAID create a local account... and it sounds like that's exactly what is being done...

    I have only used this service a couple of times in years,  I now see what you mean about the points, you should get all 500 points    I closed the thread as I assumed thats what you do when the problem is resolved.
