I've created a User account In Active Directory on a Windows 2008 R2 Server. Curious how to give that User Local Admin Rights.

I've Tried Adding The User to the Builtin Admin Group and running the command

" GPUPDATE /F "  to update group policy's but did not work. When User installs programs gets prompted to enter Administrator credentials.  

Thank you.
