Add users to Local Administrators Group

I have users that I need to add to windows Local Administrators group. These users are not Domain admins.
Is there any way to achieve this without using a script?

Thanks

As long as the Group Policy Client Side Extensions are installed on Vista and prior OSs you can deliver any AD domain user to the local admin group via Group Policy Preferences.

You can also use Restricted Groups in a GPO. If you wish you can check this guide.

if the clients are XP Pro, you can Start, Run, control userpasswords2 and simply add the domain user as a local administrator

In your active directory, create a group of all users you want to add to the local admins group.
Then create a GPO and configure the "restricted group" item to add the group you created to the local admin group.
