You must be logged on with a domain admin account, not the local Administrator account.

If the Server is joined to the Domain you will have to forcibly log in as the local administrator IE computername\administrator or .\administrator. If your signing in as domain name\administrator, or just Administrator you should be on the Domain administrator account. What Version of Windows server are you using?
