Domain Admin (DA)

Members of this group have full control of the domain. By default, this group is a member of the administrators group on all domain controllers, all domain workstations, and all domain member servers at the time they are joined to the domain. By default, the administrator account is a member of this group. Because the group has full control in the domain, add users with caution AND sparingly.
