[Windows Server 2012] User - administrator rights on administrative tools

I have the following problem.

We have a new domain (Windows Server 2012, Virtual Machines)
We have a domain controller and a RDS.

When we create a new user with administrator rights (domain administrators, enterprise admins, group policy creator, organization management, schema-administrators).

When we log on to the RDS we can't start the administrative tools (access denied). The only solution for this is:
give this user rights on c:\users\administrator.DOMAIN (so not his own homefolder but the folder of the administrator).

What is the solution for this. Strange thing: we created multiple administrator accounts (just for testing this trouble) and one account got direct administrator rights on this directory and can start the administrative tools & server manager directly)

Can anybody help us with this problem. I think its very strange we have to set the rights on this directory so we can use the administrative tools

Go to your start menu, type "Give Admin" and it should pop-up "Give Administrative Rights to a Domain User"
Follow the dialogue to give a domain user admin rights on the machine

Try leaving the domain, join workgroup, restart computer, rejoin domain, restart computer.

Still the same problem. I can only solve this problem with access on the c:\users\administrator.DOMAIN folder. Not a big problem.
