There are several ways to do this.  What I do is create a group called Local Admin on the server, add the users to the group you want to have full access and then add the local admin group to the Administrators group on the local computer.

That way you can control access to the group from the server.

I assume you have Active Directory.

1. Create a group "WorkstationAdmins" to the AD.
2. Add the five users to that group above.
3. Add this group to Workstation group "Administrators".
4. Ask the five users to logoff and logon again.

Now the five users have full access to the workstations.

William - are you only going to respond to the last comment in the thread from Toxacon, despite mr commenting first and providing the same answer?

If that's the case, I'll unsubscribe.

I think you want to do this via the Group policy add in.

Create a group to encapsulate the computers (Admin-PC) and add them to this group

Create a GPO (Admin-PC-Policy) and link it to the OU where the computers reside

In the GPO, set the following:

•Comp Config - Windows Settings - Security Settings - Restricted Groups
•Right click, Add Group
•"Administrators", OK
•Members of this Group: myDomain\Admin-PC
execture gpupdate/force

goodluck

Please explain what it is exactly that you need.  You can't have full access and at the same time have restricted access.
