Simply log on to the server with Administrator Account. Go to Computer Management

Start->Run->compmgmt.msc (hit Enter)

Go to Local Users and Groups

If you want to grant Admin access to existing user, go to Groups->Administrators (Double Click)

Click on Add-> put the name of user id which you want to grant Admin Access and say Check Name, system will resolve the name then simply click on OK.

Hope this Helps
