Are you trying to make them an administrator on the server (domain admin) or an admin on a separate computer only? Is the computer you are adding the user to connected to the domain?

 

If on a separate computer and the computer is connected to the domain, and the user already exists in your active directory on the server (you have a domain), you would add him on the separate computer to the administrators group by:

 

(On the separate computer not the server) Right click on computer and select "manage", then click on the arrow next to "Local Users and Groups" to drop down that menu, then click on groups, then double click on "administrators", then click add, at this point type in the (active directory) user name and hit ok, it should prompt you for domain administrator credentials, type those in and finish the process, then log out and log back in.

I edited that last post to make it a bit more clear, you might want to refresh your page and re-read the above post. Let me know if you have any questions.

no i want to make them a domain admin so they have the privalages on all pcs in the company,so if i click on the users name and rite click and add to group and add him to domain admin then that would sort it,so i need to get him to log back on to his machine then? i tried to do it on the laptop by going to computer-manage-users and groups but his name wasnt there so if i do it on server it should be fine

You would want to do this from the domain server for a domain admin: http://download.swsoft.com/virtuozzo/virtuozzo4.0/docs/en/win/VzWindowsClustering/21394.htm

 

If the user already has a domain account then you can just add him to the group that has admin rights on the domain. I have not actually done this on server 2012 yet so those instructions might vary a bit. It should be a similar process.

This is correct, then have him log off his machine and back on. That should update the privileges on his machine.

You should really stay away from Domain Wide Admins, just create a GPO to add the users account as a local admin to the computer/computers. That way its not domain wide.
