  • Local Admin Help!

    Can someone please give me some advice.

    I have been tasked with creating a group/user contained in the local admin group on each PC. This group needs to be a local group added to each PC if possible using AD to deploy the group/user.

    This is to enable our first line staff local admin rights on each PC they visit for installing software etc.

    We don't want the first line staff to have any rights on the Network through AD except doing password resets etc, which I have already delegated to them.

    I need to find a way of adding this group locally onto each PC in the local Admin group either through AD or a seperate tool/script.

    Any help would be gratefully received.

    Lee.

    open a dosprompt and type NET into it..

    you see a few options comming up

    choose for example:


    Code:
    NET LOCALGROUP
    [groupname [/COMMENT:"text"]] [/DOMAIN]
                  groupname {/ADD [/COMMENT:"text"] | /DELETE}  [/DOMAIN]
                  groupname name [...] {/ADD | /DELETE} [/DOMAIN]

      Thanks for the reply Dumber.

      I have tried to use the command: net localgroup test(OU)\trial (name of group) /add mydomain /domain.

      It comes back reporting it has connected to the domain but cannot find the user.

      There is no such global user or group: test\trial

      System error 1317.

      Thanks again.

            Thanks for your help Dumber today.

            The cure was not to use the Domain switch as this is for XP machines and causes a conflict in some Windows 2000 domains from what I can gather from other people posts on other websites.

            Once I had dropped the domain switch it worked!.

            Thanks again,

            Lee.
