    For add computers to the domain, you need to consider using AD Right Delegation. For the rest, you need to grant this user local administrator privileges on selected or all computers. This can be achieved by using GPO Restricted Groups or Group Policy Preferences

    OK, please try to put that account into "Printer Operators" built-in group or use Delegation wizard and allow "Printer objects" for the user

    I solve the issues by simply adding the the user on the network folder security, as full control user.
