Local Admin provides you with an easy way to install a package that will make the currently logging in user a local admin on the computer. It checks to see if the user exists in Open Directory in a group named \"administration\" (this must be the exact short name of the group in Open Directory - without quotes). If that user exists in that group, they are added to the local admin group on the machine they are logging into, so that they can do anything a local admin can do on the specific workstation. As soon as you take this user out of the group in Open Directory (and they log out of the machine), they will be removed from the local admin group on the workstation. This way, you can somewhat dynamically give users local admin access, if needed, without having to touch any of the machines.
