That is all you need so long as Domain Admins have full permissions to the OU your Exchange servers are in.

Try adding administrator account into Organization Management and Server Management roles via EMS...

Add-RoleGroupMember "Recipient Management" -Member Administrator
Add-RoleGroupMember "Server Management" -Member Administrator


You need to go into your root domain > users and computers > View > Advanced Features > Then from the left pain Microsoft Exchange Security Groups and add your Administrator to the Org Management Group. This always fixes the problem in most organizations I work in.
