When I say logon to the local administrator account, I did mean you had to be sitting at the machine in question.

I meant more in the logon to machine A as a local admin to machine A then try to remote admin machine B. Because you have a DOMAIN and the remote machine is no longer part of the DOMAIN, the DOMAIN ADMINISTRATOR no longer hold any sway as far as machine B is concerned.

Ideally the local admin account (username/password) is the same on both machines.
