I am having an issue with a particular piece of software. Their support says users need full admin right to the local PC.

We recently moved to Server 2008 domain and it seems domain admins dont have full local admin rights. Is this correct and how to I resolve the issue

You can use a Group policy object to make the domain admins for each computer a member of the local administrator group.

You can test by giving the users full control over the application directories only.  I have had success doing this previously.

Use GP to turn off all User Access Control settings.  This worked for us.
