Add a global group to "server operator" group

Hi,

What is the line of code that will add a global group to the server operators group? (2003 AD)

Thanks

Depending on your AD and settings you could use something along the lines of

dsmod group 'groupDN' -addmbr 'groupDN'

'GroupDN' is basically the location of the object in your active directory.

Hi 58872,

Do you want to modify the server operators group to be GLOBAL?  if so it would be

dsmod group GroupDN -scope U

But I would ask why you would want to do that (or even add a global group to the server operators?  A global administrative group already has all the rights of the server operators group... and a non-administrative global group should most likely NOT have those rights because it could allow them to alter rights depending on the role of the server.

What is the ultimate goal you're attempting to achieve?

Also, from the server:

net localgroup "domain\globalgroup" "server operators" /add

The only catch is that the Global Group name cannot be more than 20 characters.  It's a limitation of the 'net' command.

Thanks for the answer, thought  I would split the points a little to be fair but I did go with Kevnet.
