Add users to the Local Administrators group on Domain Controllers

As you already have noticed, after you promote a Windows Seerver to a domain controller the “Local users and groups” goes away! So in order to add a user to the Local Administrators Group ( or any Local User Group) you need to do it using the following manual way.

Open an elevated command prompt and run the following :

  1. net localgroup Administrators /add {domain}\{user}localadmins
