Adding domain user to local admin group

By mldenman ·
I have a windows 2000 server and all workstations running 2000 pro. I am trying to add a domain user account to the local admin group on the workstation so that the client has full control of their own pc. The workstation is already a member of the domain as well as the user account. I know that the workstation and user are both able to be authenticated to the domain. The problem I am having is that when I try to add the domain user to the local admin group I recieve this error....."unable to process object <username> the object either does not exist or the domain could not be contacted." I have never had this problem before. I know that I am authenticating to the domain because I was able to login as the domain user and have the workstation added to the domain. Does anyone know the solution? Help is greatly appreciated!

Are you sure that the DOmain Admins group is a member of the local Admins group? Log on as another domain user, and check the membership in the admins group. The only way I have found to fix this problem is to rejoin the PC to the domain.

I have checked all these options before submitting the problem. However, I did go back to verify I did not miss anything and I have not. Error still occurs and I continue to troubleshoot.
