I have added a new computer to Windows domain, but when I try to do something, what requires elevated privileges, I just get a message to contact administrator, but no promt to enter administrator credentials. On other computers the promt is presented, but there's none on this one.

I have access to server and to administrator account.

What have I missed?

Check the local security policies (secpol.msc), specifically the "User Account Control: Behavior of the Elevation Prompt for Standard Users" under Local Policies->User Rights Assignment.

You may also want to run an RSOP.msc on the system in question to see which, and how the various group policies may be affecting it.
