Removing NT domain account from workstation local administrator group

Current configuration for all of our 2k workstations included adding the NT domain user to the local administrator group.  Looking to remove via batch or script.  Are there any wild cards that can be used to remove any user from a domain from that group? Thanks!

Hi drsst4,

It has been a while since I have done this but if memory serves correct you could issue this command via script.

net localgroup "Administrators" "Account to delete" /delete


God Bless

If you're using Active Directory, you could also push down a Group Policy that sets the membership of the Administrators group using the Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Restricted Groups.  This allows you to specify a list of users and/or groups that you define to be members of the "restricted group".  Any account/group that's currently a member of that restricted group, but which you don't list in your policy, will be removed from the group membership:
