How to add account from Source Forest to Domain Admins in Target Forest?

I was able to add account from SOURCE forest to Domain local group in Target Forest, but now I can't add Domain Local group to Domain Admin Global group because you can't add domain local group to the global group.....


Please advice.
THank you!

You unfortuneately can't do that becasue domain admins is a global group and you can't add someone from another forest

Is there a way to add the account to another group in another forest and then add it to domain admins?

No because global groups have the following scope:

•Accounts from the same domain as the parent global group


•Global groups from the same domain as the parent global group




Thanks
