If you have created "Domain Admins" global group, it automatically
belongs to the Administrators localgroup in each workstations when it

So users belong to "Domain Admins" have administrative rights to each

I recommend that "Domain Admins" global group should be created with
rid=512 to grant administrative rights for its domain itself.
