An xp computer was added to a Server 2008 domain, and is now listed as a member.   I am able to log on to the domain with the domain admin credentials it was added under, and access shared drives on the server, but I am unable to add additional domain members as local admins.  From the client computer, when adding local Administrators under the local Users and Groups snap in, the scope only sees the local computer, it does not see the domain.  
Not sure what the issue is..

Is it you cant see the domain users in the list to add users?

have you tried adding a user by using domain\username i.e. walnut\walld

You can try readding the workstation to domain,

Also check any local policies are applied to the workstation.


Else try to connect the workstation from different computer and check
( Open my computer manage --> Rt click and connect to another computer --> brouse non working system and check, whether you are able to add user to local groups)

Bring your machine back to the Workgroup. From Domain controller, remove any account showing for the said Machine. Now put back the machine back to the Domain.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I will try this,
"have you tried adding a user by using domain\username i.e. walnut\walld "

and re add to domain if needed.

Dumb question, but see attached screenshot.  Am I adding the computers correctly?  I right click->add new computer->create a name, and leave the rest of settings default.

I re added the computer to the domain and have the same issue.  I am able to access domain resources but am unable to add domain users as local admins for the computer.

Rather than adding machine from AD end, why not you try adding it from the machine side?

Just make sure you are able to ping towards the Domain Controller from the XP Machine and also resolve the Domain (Check this by running nslookup command in Command Prompt)
