Usually, if you wanl through make a new user wizard, you get the chance to make a PC account also, and then that user will be set up as local administrator (which goes against giving minimum permissions whenever possible, right).

What would you do if you made a user account, but didn't set up the PC at that time?  Simply go into the add computer wizard, make the PC account then manually add the user as local admin after running server/connectcomputer?  You don't want to delete the user in SBS (at least I think you don't).  Is there some way at the server to assign the user as local admin to that PC like the new user wizard would do?  something before you connectcomputer so it's in the script for when you DO run connectcomputer?

Thank you.

I guess this is the answer / similar question... but do you do that before or after the computer is connected?  Before, I don;t see groups (yet)

You can do this during the connect computer wizard or after you have connected the PC.

DOH!!!  I am in a fog!?  when you are in the connect computer wizard at the desktop, it asks what users are on that machine.  that sets them up as local admins when you are choosing what existing profile to use?

FYI, when you run the Add-User wizard the part where the computer gets set up is actually the Add-Computer wizard.  It's just chained to the Add-User wizard for simplicity's sake.

So, if you choose to not set up a computer at the time you run the Add-User wizard and want to do so later, just run the Add-Computer wizard prior to going to the computer to run http://<servername>/connectcomputer.
