As the users don't have administrator priviledges on their machines, only the administrator (of the machine) can do such things. Now, what can i do to have a domain administrator (since root is a valid user in the domain but not administrator).

This is a little confusing.

Do you want to be able to have your Domain Administrator install
software on each machine?  If that is the case, you will need to make
the Domain Administrator ( root in this case? ) a member of each local
machine's Administrators group.  You might be able to do this from
remote using the net command. You'll also probably need all the right
