I'm sure the privilege is stored in AD, which means you will need an AD
account with write access to the testpc1 object.

This means you're connecting as the user "testpc1" which doesn't have
access.  Machine accounts normally don't have much access at all.
You'll need to use an account that has been delegated admin access to
testpc1 instead.
