Normally adding a domain user account to the group Domain Admins is
sufficient.  You may want to check the settings for the user right
"Log on locally"; I don't recall what the defaults for NT server are.
Make sure also that DOMAIN\Domain Admins is in the
NTSERVER\Administrators local group on the server in question.  It is
by default, but perhaps it was changed by one of your admins.
