I've created a domain user that runs a batch file which install some software upon login. Is there a way to get this user to have local admin rights on every computer on the domain? I don't want to add him to the DomainAdmins group..

Dear MMHDU,
net localgroup administrators username /add

The above command will add the user into Local admin group. You can put this command in login script or remotly execute from your machine using PSexec remote tool. You can download this from www.sysintenals.com

Hope this helps

Cheers!

That command won't work as you have to be a local admin to add other users as local admin. I get an access denied error when I put that into a login script of the user.

Alternatively, use Group Policy - need some help with this?

Hi MMHDU, I thought you could do it with Group Policy but it appears I am wrong, on investigation though, it seems it has to be a script and I have found one which should work for you, it is the one named ADDAdmin.vbs on this page -

Let me know how you get on.

thanks.
