Add their domain administrator account to the local administrators group of
just their computers or a less secure option is to use "restricted groups"
at the OU level for those workstations to add the domain users group [or
other group you create] to the local administrators group for the computers
in just that OU and of course you would not want to have and servers in that
OU. That is the easiest way, but then users can access each other computers
as administrator either via local logon or via the network which is not a
good situation in my opinion. --- Steve;EN-US;Q320065
