Hi I need to be able to create a user, that can login to each computer have local admin rights and also have the ability to login to the server, but can not change the administrator password.

There is certian software that runs on our server which requires admin writes, but i don't want to give the administrator password to users, who sometimes have to go to the server.

you would want to add them to the administrators group in local users in group...if you go to my computer and right click you will see manager...that will get you to users and groups...go to groups, and under administartors and double click on it...then add the user and they will have admin rights, but not be the actual administrator account
