Sorry if this has been answered already, but not finding this issue specifically.

I have a server 2019 Standard VM, that is not a domain controller. It is though part of the domain. I added a second account and add it to the Administrators group, and removed it from the Users group, so it has the same permissions as the default Administrator account. I though can only sign out of the server with it, and can not disable the Administrator account with it. I also can not access things like PowerShell(Admin) Is there somewhere else I need to make it a member of, do give it the same permissions as the administrator account?

I am logging in both of them as local computer name\account

    I solved it, and it was due to me not paying attention. It helps when you domain join a system to login with .\ so it uses the admin local account, and not the domain one that doesn't have admin level permission.
