Giving Admin Rites To Any Domain User On The Local PC

Hi Experts,

I am setting up a new network with SBS 2003, With all new work stations. The software that will be installed on the work stations needs the user to have Admin rites to the local PC. The user will be logging on to a Domain. I know how to add a Domain user to the local PC But is there a way to add a Domain User Group to the Local PC. There are times when different Domain users are using the pc. I hope I was clear.

Thank You

Huge Security Risk, increasing your overall management costs and making you more vulnerable to spyware/adware/viruses.

Just add the domain users group to the local administrators group.

Yes I know the risk. I do not have the domain users group as a choice. How do I enter It

Type it in.

And make sure you are set to select from users and groups, not just users.

You can always instruct your users how to use the RunAs command and give them a local account with admin rights.

But most people consider ease of use more important than security - microsoft has for decades.
