Making a Domain Admin a local admin on remote machines

Hey all
Does anyone have a batch file or some type of script or even a tools they could share that i coule send out through my network to add the domain admin to the local admin group of all users pcs.
This is a windows 2003 domain infrastructure.
Thanks in Advance

Even if you dont have one that would work on all users machines just one that would make it possible to do this on any remote machine.
I know in windows 2000 you could use the cusrmgr.exe tool but i havent seen that included in the 2003 server tool kit. If someone has any ideas please help out.

When you join the computer to the domain, the domain admin is added to Administrators group. If the computer is not joined, there is no domain so, no domain admin.

Well for some reason it isnt working on here. I am not sure why. But anytime i add a computer to the domain it does not add the domain admin in as a local admin on the machine. I checked and rechecked. I did get the problem figured out though. This is what i did in case anyone needs and future reference. According to MS it is a common occurance.

You can find cusrmgr.exe in Resource Kit (not sure if in RK2003 but for sure is in RK2000)

If it is in the resource kit for 2000 will it work on 2003?

What do you mean by that?
I know what a workstation is or whatever but is that tool made for servers or something?
Just not quite following what you mean.
Thanks
