Grant a Domain User access to unlock a Domain Admin account?

Is it possible to grant a Domain User access to unlock a Domain Admin account?
 
Additionally, is it possible for a Domain User to be able to add / remove users from the Domain Admin group?
 
Thanks in advanced.

No. The people doing this must be Domain Admins. Ordinary Users could wreak havoc if allowed to do this.  

I have remote access to my clients servers if this needs to be done.

I don't know your physical setup but one possible workaround is to make one trusted and trustworthy person a member of the server admin group. That might solve your issue. ... Thinkpads_User
