Local admin rights on a domain

By Holmesglen ·
I have a bunch of 2000 pro workstations as members of a 2000 domain. I need to give one group of users a higher level of access to the workstations (full control - to change the registry) without giving them more access on the domain (sever access). any ideas??

Create a domain security group "local admins" add that group to the local admin group of each workstation. Then you can adjust who you want to be a local admin by adjusting the membership to the "local admins" group. To add the group to the workstations local admin group, you can right click the workstations computer object in AD and choose manage. In the future you can Pre-add the group to the local Admin group with imaging software.

Add that group of users to the LOCAL Administrator Group of the PC's. This will only give them Local Admin rights on that PC and not the Domain.
