Hi
On the server while logged on as an administrator.
In the start menu go to Administrative tools > Computer management.
In the left tree expand local users and groups then click groups.
Double click Admintrators on the right and add the user to this group.

if you are connecting remotely you should also add your account to another group in the same place called remote desktop users

If you want the user to have all the same privilages as the built-in administrator then open the user in Active Directory Users and computers, go to the Member Of tab, and then add the following groups

Administrators
Domain Admins
Enterprise Admins
Schema Admins
Group policy creator/owners

Just give the user local admin rights on the workstation

Log in as administrator on the workstation
Go to Control panel>User accounts>Click add then type the username and domain and then click next select administrator option under other.

You don't want to give the user admin rights on the entire network.
