Sharepoint administrator

Hi:

 We have installed a sharepoint 2010 in a windows 2008 domain, and we need to have several administrators,when we use the local account hostname/administrator, we have full privileges, we can run iisreset and stsadm with no problem.We have more administrators included in the local machine administrators group (with their domain user account) who can´t execute this tasks. We also have test adding domain administrators accounts but this have not work.

I supposed users would have full administration access because they are local machine administrators. ¿Could anyone tell me how to fix this?.

Thanks

First, the users must have the needed permissions on Sharepoint itself, also if they are trying to run such tools as IISRESET & stsadm locally on your 2008 server, Please make sure that they run it from an elevated command prompt, i.e. , run a Command prompt as administrator & execute the commands they need, this maybe UAC interfering with those applications here.
Domain or Local Administrators do not inherit any authorization in Sharepoint.

If those accounts are NOT Farm Administrators and you use stsadm to make changes to the system it might appear to work but in fact could be causing problems even if the domain or local admin has access to the SQL database instance hosting the Sharepoint databases.

All Sharepoint administrative work should be executed as a designated Farm Administrator.

If you want to administer Sharepoint then add the required accounts into the Farm Administration group in Sharepoint.

This user was also a "farm administrator", when i try to execute iisreset in the local console (not remote console), shows me a message advicing he must be a remote administrator.

This server is virtualized in a hyper-V environment. ¿Could this be causing this?.

Thanks and my apologices for the delay.

Yes we have tried to run cmd using "run as", but it didn´t work.
