Executable needs Domain Admin rights , local administrator not enough rights

Running a 2003 Server domain running an in house written executabel program in .NET.
This runs as a service on a member server in a 2003 Domain. It is started as a domain account that is a member of "server operator" and "Local Administrator group". The user accoutn suptel has been added to the policy to start as a service as required. It wil not start until the domain account is a member of Domain Admins. I wish to reduce the level of authority in the domain. Being a member of LOCAL ADMINISTARTOR is acceptable but not DOMAIN ADMINS.
I have re-installed the app on the member server as this "suptel" account but makes no difference until I add membership of Domain Admins

Although this was not the problem thanks for the link.
The problem seemed to be a member ship issue with membership of Local Administrator - it seems the APP fell over trying to copy files across and in order to perform this the user accoutn had to be a member of Local Administrator.
