Adding a computer wizard - how do you make a certain user the local admin?
Posted on 2006-06-07
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?
