    Local access to AD Domain Services

    I am currently running Windows 7 Pro. The laptop has been added to the domain.

    I wish to be able to access Domain Services logged in as local administrator on the laptop. When opening AD I am receiving - The Logon Attempt failed - I believe this is because it is using the local administrator credentials. It is possible to set what credentials I wish to open the AD Snap-in with?

    Many thanks

    Why would you want to do this? Why not just logon to the domain and talk to your domain controller with RSAT installed?
