    I log in to Windows 2003 server R2 through a domain (but on the local machine). I need my log on to be the admin over this local machine. Since the user details are stored on the domain, my username doesn't show up in local users and groups. How do I make a remote user an admin?

    You may wish to have this subject moved to the Networking forum here at TSG it will get better coverage from all of the people there. To do this just click on the little triangle at the top right corner and ask a moderator to please move this thread.

    Thanks, I'm unsure about where this would go because I'm on the local machine, but the login policy is through a domain. We basically went with 2003 Server to replicate a dev environment, but use it like XP.
