I have 3 Servers
2 x 2008 both DC's
1 x 2003, Joined as a pc to the domain. ( for BESX )

I am having problems installing BEX express, get to the sql install section and stops with error message saying cant install due to admin rights. Cant remember the exact message
I have made a user called BESadmin and granted admin rights to the domain. i have added as admin it to the 2003 box. When i log on to the bes server as BESadmin i do not get the admin tools, but if i log on as administrator i do. I have followed several posts on here as to how to add user's to admin groups on a local pc but still not working.
Any ideas, routes to follow.
I have not ran DCpromo on the 2003 box as didnt think it was req. am i right in my thinking.

Feel stupid as stuck on such a small issue.
