    1. Right click 'My Computer' and choose Manage

    2. Go to local users and groups.

    3. Click open the 'Administrators' group and add a new user in the members list.

    4. This user will be a local Administrator on the server.

    Assisted Solution

    If a LOCAL USER:
    From the Windows Start menu select Administrative Tools | Computer Management. If this menu item does not exist, you are either not an administrator for the computer or the server is a domain controller and you need to create a domain user instead. From the Computer Management dialog, navigate to System Tools | Local Users and Groups | Users on the left panel; right click on Users and select New user from the popup menu. In the New User dialog, enter prtracker, PR-Tracker and Problem Tracking System for the User name, Full name and Description, respectively.
    Uncheck box User must change password at next login and then check box Password Never Expires.
    Click the Create button to create the user and then click Close button. Optional steps follow: double-click the prtracker username on the right panel.
    From the prtracker Properties dialog, select tab Member Of and click the Add button.
    From the Select Groups dialog and in the Name box, type Administrators and click the OK button. Also, add prtracker user to be member of DCOM User Group

    If the computer is member of a domain, create an account in AD U&C and add Domain and Enterprise Admins to the user. The server will automatically 'pick up' acounts with Domain Admin permissions.
