Local computer administration

By agibbs ·
By default, when a computer is added to the domain the Domain Admins group is added to the local Administrators group on the computer. Is this configurable? Can I specify additional groups to be added to the local Administrators group when a computer is added to the domain?

In an NT environment, I feel safe in saying NO. With Win2K, you could configure Group Policy to add any group to the local Administrators group on systems. But, you are in NT, so that is not an option.
You could just write a 1-line BAT file that uses the NET LOCALGROUP command to add another group to the local Admins group. YOu could then set up a workstation on your domain, then after setup go to a network share and run the BAT file. Just an idea.

hope this helps

I think you can do this with user manager. Run user manager on the server, then select your domain but select the PC in question. If it is an NT or 2k machine and has been added to the domain, it should be available for you to choose. Once you select it, open the Administrators group and select Add. Then you can browse to your domain controller and select a group or user to add to the local Admin group. I do this with 2k machines in an NT domain, so I would think it would work with NT PCs also.
