You can just install the management tools on the system you choose to update/change active directory.

Since these tools can only be used domain users who have the necessary permissions, the ket is to make sure that all your users have appropriate permissions. No-one should have any server, infrastructure to domain management permissions unless they really need it for their job function - even then its a case of give people what they need - and no more.
