In a Server 2008r2 domain, should the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer be installed on a Domain Controller, or can it be installed on a member server by a domain administrator?

MBSA is installed be default on server 2008 r2.

You can run MBSA from server manager. MBSA does have the ability to scan remote servers either by using GUI or cmd.
