What is the easiest way to add a Domain Global Security Group to a Local Security Group using a script?  I am a rather wimpy script writer.  I know that I can add a domain user to a local security group using the NET command.  I would rather add a Domain Global Group to the Local "Administrators" Security Group, that way I can control access to the privilege buy controlling membership in the Domain Global group.

Windows Server 2003 Domain with Windows 2000 Pro Workstations.

Thanks.

Hi

What's the problem with adding the following to a batch file?

net add localgroup /administrators "globalsecuritygroupname"   ?

It's simple, it works for global security groups too (at least it does on my domain) - just add it as or to a .bat file in a start-up script in a computer policy of a gpo linked to an OU containing the pc's you want to add it to. Please let me know if somehow I've missed the point,

Deb :))
