Your domain admin should be in the Domain Administrators group.
That group (if not already) SHOULD be in every local client group of Administrators.

If that's not the case, you found your problem. Release a GPO to fix

Hi,
Open at a workstation computer management with the rights of the local Administrator
Validate domain group Domain Admins  in local group Administrators

Out of curiosity are you using Windows Vista or Windows 7? If so what happens if you right click on a program and select Run As Administrator? It could be that you have UAC enabled which is causing your issue.

Log into your domain admin account in question and check the SID using xcacls. Post the SID here.

Please open computer management on a client pc and make sure that inside the local group of Administrators there is Domain Admins group as well.
