add the domain user to the local administrator group, to do this right click on computer go to manage then expand the system tools tab, then go to users and groups, on selecting groups go to the administrators group right click on it and go to properties go to add and type in the domain user you need to add.

The above will have to be completed using admin privledges.

and you can do the same thing remotely.

WHAT it wont make him domain admin unless you add him into the domain admin group via active directory on the DOMAIN.

doing the above will only add the user as a local admin on the LOCAL computer.
