    I have a Windows 2000 network with about 15 XP Pro workstations.
    What is the easiest way to add the Domain Admins group to the local Admin
    group of the workstations. Some sneaky folks have removed it.
    Can this be done with a group policy?
    Thanks!

    Hi
    Don't give sneaky folks admin permissions so they can't play with group
    membership.
    By default the Domain Admin users are embers of the Local Administrators
    group in local machines.
    using net group or restricted groups policy, scripting, etc... you can
    change that.
