I am trying to write a script that will add a domain group to the local admin group of computers located in a certain OU. I have been able to write a script to this one by one and only if I state the computer name. Is there a way to do this for multiple computers contain in a certain OU?

Here is the script I have so far:

strComputer = "happy"
Set objAdmins = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/Administrators")
Set objGroup = GetObject("WinNT://co/itdivision")
objAdmins.Add(objGroup.ADsPath)

It would be much easier to do this with Restricted Groups IMO

Definately use Group policy and restricted groups! Dont even consider a script.
