I have a windows server std 2008 R2 as a member server with a WS 2003 PDC. Are there any differences logging into the member server using a local admin account or the domain admin account? Differences like permissions; ability to install programs; etc.

The WS 2008 R2 is configured as a RDS server host and I want to know if it is best to install applications that are planned for remote desktop uses local or domain admin login rights.

on the local machine, no there shouldn't be any difference, the permissions changes are when you start trying to do things on the domain if you are logged in as a domain administrator.
