Hi

I would like to add a couple of Domain Security Groups to the Power Users group on a selected group of servers.

I understand I can use the Restricted Groups functionality of Group Policy to do this, however I when trying to add the Power Users group as a Restricted Group, I am unable to do so - any ideas?

Thx- urgent so max points

First put the users that you want to give local admin rights to into a security group

Create and OU that contains the computers that you want them to have rights on and put the computers into the OU. Note that this cannot be the Computers Container.

Create a group policy that configures the security group as a Restricted Group, and under the "This group is a member of...", option add "Power  users"

Link the GPO to the OU that contains the computers

Run gpupate/force to update the policy

Thanks

I have created a domain security group and configured this as a Restricted Group, however I cannot add Power Users under the 'this group is a member of'? There are only Groups to add, not built-in groups?

In fact, I can't seem to add this domain group to any of the local groups (administrators, remote desktop users, power users etc).

Any ideas?
