Server 2008 create user as administrator

I cannot create an administrator user.  When I create a new user the option is "standard" or "administrator".  I check administrator and create the user.  If I select that user and go to Change Account Type, the account type has been set back to standard.  If I check administrator, the "Change Account Type" button greys out.

If is not a DC right click on Computer -> Manage -> Configuration -> Users
and create your user "testuser"
After this just click on Groups -> double click on Administrators and add your user "testuser"
