I need to add a global group to certain workstations to give one or two persons in each department administrative access to departmental pcs. For example I have created a global group call PDAdmin and I need to add this to the administrators group on 100 different workstations at the Police Dept. I know I can do this through compmgmt.msc but I will have to do it on every computer. I have been looking for a way to do it through active directory or a script but so far have not found what I am looking for.
