You need to be domain admin to add users to a server environment and to add such users to the administrators group.

You can do it with a local admin, but that means logging off and starting without the domain. Users might not be happy.  For a server, domain admin works best for all concerned.

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.

Users need to be an admin, either local or Domain, to be able to make others an admin.

A Local admin cannot make a domain account an admin, only Domain admins can do that, but a Domain admin CAN make a local User an admin on a local machine.
