Hi,

I have written a VBScript to add a domain group into the local administrators group. This has been added to the startup script group of a computer GPO however it is applied every time. How can I run the script only once on the PC?

Regards,

Michael

In that same script add some simple conditional processing:

if exist \\servername\sharename\%computername%.txt goto End

:Start

<VBS file adding domain group to local admin group>
echo %computername% > \\servername\sharename\%computername%.txt

:End

This will basically create a tiny text file with the computers name as the title.  It will check for the file and skip the install if it exists.  You can also park this file on the local computer as well if you like.

Hope this help
