PI Administrator not allowed in the Administrator Group of the Servers

So, can someone help me understand how a PI Administrator account can be configured in order to manage the PI System but not be allowed membership in the Administrators group?

 

Has anyone ever been able to administer PI SMT, PI System Explorer, or the PI system when they are not allowed to be in the Administrators Group of the Data Historian and PI AF servers? I am desperately searching for documentation that states that a physical account used to administer PI must be a member of the server Administrators Group. There is a lot of security documentation around interfaces, but not for the actual accounts used to manage PI SMT, etc.
