In short, you can't.

Local admin rights are just that; local. You can't allow a local user account rights to use domain admin functions on a domain. On the converse, you can allow a domain account the right to administer a local machine.

You need to use a domain account (with domain admin privileges) to administer the domain.

Ask your Domain Admin for needed rights

and if you're legit, they'll be granted.

And if you're not, they won't.

A real answer.

The bottom line is very clear. If you have to ask this question in the first place, there is absolutely NO WAY you should be a domain admin. Just the truth.

Unfortunately

Unfortunately you need admin rights to assign admin rights. So as was previously suggested, contact your network/domain admin and they will take care of you if appropriate.
