I am experimenting with a home domain network based on Windows Server 2008. I initially assumed that since I am a domain administrator, I should also have full access rights to workstations on the domain. Then I read about 'local administrator' rights on workstations, and now it does not seem as clear cut.
Can somebody explain the relationship between a domain administrator and local administrator?
If I am a domain administrator, how can I obtain local administrator rights on all the domain connected systems? Can I make some super-administrator account? I need to be able to access them remotely if it makes any difference.
