HOW TO ALLOW A LOCAL ADMIN ACCOUNT DOMAIN PRIVILEGES

My local Admin account is logged onto the 'domain' on the local pc, but I now wish to provide permissions to copy information across to a server from the 'dos' prompt.

how do i allow this access?

the message i get is "the current user does not have sufficient permissions on the selected server.  please check permissions."
In the command prompt you'll have to use an account that has permissions on the destination. Why do you want to use the local account?
yes i know and ive tried but what im doing does not appear to work so ive removed those changes.  if i tell you i will have to kill you!  i will tell you after if thats ok if it works!!:)))

i have created an 'OU' in the Domain Controllers folder & within the 'OU' the local user account resides, although i have not created a 'gp folder' - does this matter as i think ive already done what you mention but just in the 'OU'.  im sure i tried this before but it didnt work so i removed it and stuck with the 'OU' for simplicity until i knew what the 'hec' i was doing.  ha ha !!!!::((

i have the following:

- 1 master dc, dns & dhcp & sp2
- 1 member server & sp1
- 1 client pc - i wish to be able to copy some information via 'dos' prompt to the member server via \\memberserver....................

ive logged onto the the 'member server' and located the 'd:\ drive' and the particular folder is already shared there with 'everyone', but i've now also added the 'client' access just incase, although 'everyone' should do the job.  so i know im doing it wrong.
create a global - ive just assumed you mean create an 'OU', when i read your comments again!!
aswell as the 'domain administrator' i have created anothe local user account which can logon to either the physical pc or logon to the domain, but now wish to be able to allow this account remote access via what im trying to do.
hi yes ive done it.  although i thought it would resolve my real issue but it never.  oh well im going to try something else, thanks for that guide about providing permission on the actual directory.
