Hi,

How do I add one user to the local administrator group in ALL machines in
the domain using group policy? I DON'T want to remove other users who are
already in the local admin group. I know I have to do something with Member
Of but don't know how. Thanks

Chris,

This cannot be done with existing Group Policy extensions. As you allude,
Restricted Groups policy replaces the group, so you lose existing
membership.

You would have to write a script (startup most likely due to permissions
requirements) to do something like this.

Startup script would work well. Try " net localgroup administrators domain\user /add
". Be very careful though, as if that script also runs on domain controllers, that
user will be added to the administrators group for the domain. --- Steve

Thanks for the help. Just wonder why MS doesn't think about this option with
restircted group.

Then they'd have to rename the policy ;-).
