Just to close-up this thread (maybe), here's what I found works:
1. Logged on as the *workstation* Admin account, gave the user
workstation Admin rights.
2. Logged on to the NT Domain account as the user, gave the user's
*domain* account workstation Admin rights.
This gives the user, whether logged on under the workstation "domain"
or the NT Domain, workstation Admin rights. Thus, server-based scripts
that set time, setup routing, etc. will work. A down-side to this is
that you have to do it for each user on each workstation.
I suppose the other option might be to go the "domain admin group"
route, create an "administrator" user, and somehow get this stuff to
execute on boot as a service, or whatever. I've done things like that
before, but don't recall exactly how I accomplished it.
Anyway, method #1 worked for me. Of course, there are workstation
