adding local admin accounts when joining AD

Dear Experts:

Can anyone tell me how to either:

add an Active Directory user group to to the local administrators group of an XP box the same way the domain admins group is added

or:
add a specific user account when the same box is added to Active Directory???

thanks,
Keith

Create a batch file with the following line (mine adds Enterprise Admins to the Local Admins group)

net localgroup "administrators" /add "enterprise admins"

Setup a GPO with a "Computer Startup Script" and add your .bat file.

Both of those solutions seem plausible but I am having some difficulty getting this to work. I am going to build a non-production machine and play with it a little more. Please have a bit of patience, I'll get back to this and award some points...


thanks,
Keith
