    GPO Question...

    Can anyone tell me how to include a USER or a GROUP to the LOCAL
    Administrator group of our workstations - WITHOUT removing the users already
    present in them?

    Thanks.

  2. Create a computer startup group policy object for computers in the
    workstations OU.

    For the "command" part of the policy, type "net" and for the parameters type
    "localgroup administrators domain\mygroup /add"

    So, the full command you're executing is:

    net localgroup administrators domain\mygroup /add

    Hope this helps

    Add the following to a startup (not logon) script:

    net localgroup Administrators domainName\userName /add
