I am running AD Widows 2003 R2. Everytime I have created a user on AD by default it is member of domain user. I want the new user ids that I create, becomes member of group1 by deafult.

Do I have to make changes to schema?

You could use a user template and add the group1 group to the template. Then, when you use the template to create a user, they will be a member of the group1 group automatically.

All users created are members of Domain Users - this cannot be changed.  Due to underlying dependencies, this is something you don't want to mess with.

You can use a template or script the users addition to your extra group without too much problem.
