The instructions say create a local admin

Create a new user called BESadmin and ensure you create a mailbox.  Ensure this user is ONLY a member of "Domain users
3. Make BESadmin a local Administrator of the BES server
4. Go to Admin Tools on open "Local Security Policy" and expand the "Local Policies" and "User Right Assignment".  You need
to add BESadmin to "Log on Locally" and log on as Service". " why is it so important the BESADMIN is a local admin -- can't i just give him the right to log on locally and make them a domain admin.???

I only have 1 server -- so i can't make BESADMIN a local admin on a dc -- so is okay if i just make him a domian  admin ==
and continue on with the instructions ??
These instructions are from EE == on how to install a bes server -- without issue
