use the resource kit utility addusers.exe

create a file with following content:

[Local]
Administrators,Members can fully administer the computer/domain,BEBRUSNIA\Domain Admins

Save it and use following command:

addusers /c <your filename> \\<remote computername>


best regards

I just added the Domain Admins group from the domain called BEBRUSNIA to the local group Administrators by using the file created.

in your case change BEBRUSNIA\Domain Admins by the account you wish to add ( may be a global group or individual account)

best regards
