Hi All!

I'd like to know if there's any way to collect the information on the users who are members of the local Administrators group though SCCM.

Any ideas?

Many thanks.

Cheers!

I think that you can collect information for users who are member of domain groups only.

Here's a VBScript file I pushed to all workstations.  If a user has admin rights, it writes out a text file in the format of computername.username.txt to whatever share you specify.
 

' Variables 
Dim objFileSystem, objOutputFile
Dim strOutputFile

' Init objects
Set Shell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set oNet= WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

' Grab computername	
	computername = Shell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%computername%")


' See if we can do something "Admin" like
if filesys.FolderExists("\\" & computername & "\Admin$\System32") then
' Grab username
	oUser = oNet.UserName
' Set filename to computername.username.txt
	strOutputFile="\\wksms01\logs\" & computername & "." & oUser & ".txt"
	Set objOutputFile = filesys.CreateTextFile(strOutputFile, TRUE)
	'Close file
	objOutputFile.Close
	Set objFileSystem = Nothing
end if

Open in new window

aleinss: Thanks for the script but I was interested in knowing if I could do this though the SCCM console without having to push out any scripts.

Hello,

Normally, SCCM is able to collect such data but by default it is not configured to do so.
Which data are collected by SCCM from a computer is configured using MOF files.

There is a pretty good post at "My ITForum" Web Site on the subject with a step-by-step description of the implementation.

Here is the link:

Hope this will help.
Regards
