we are looking for a script that will accomplish the following if possible:
1. add a user to the local administrator account
2. rename the machine
3. add computer to domain and reboot.

ideally if the script would prompt for step 1 and 2, so that we could enter the info. or if it can pull from a txt input file.

thx

Use restricted groups for to add the user to a security group.

Put both scripts on administrator desktop (on image if you want). Name one rename.vbs and the other domain.vbs.

Change the username/password/domain settings in the scripts.
Dim WshShell
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Const JOIN_DOMAIN = 1
Const ACCT_CREATE = 2
 
strDomain = "Domain.local"
strUser = "username"
strPassword = "password"
 
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
strComputer = objNetwork.ComputerName
 
Set objComputer = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=Impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2:Win32_ComputerSystem.Name='" & strComputer & "'")
ReturnValue = objComputer.JoinDomainOrWorkGroup(strDomain, strPassword, strDomain & "\" & strUser, NULL, JOIN_DOMAIN + ACCT_CREATE)

 rv = WshShell.run("shutdown -r -t 5", 1)

Open in new window

Dim WshShell
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Name = InputBox("Enter the new computer name below and click OK to continue","Rename: Step 1")

Username = "administrator"
Password = "something"

Set objWMIService = GetObject("Winmgmts:root\cimv2")

' Call always gets only one Win32_ComputerSystem object.
For Each objComputer in objWMIService.InstancesOf("Win32_ComputerSystem")
        Return = objComputer.rename(Name,Password,User)
        If Return <> 0 Then
           WScript.Echo "Rename failed. Error = " & Err.Number
        End If
Next

WshShell.RegWrite "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce\JoinDomain", """C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\domain.vbs""", "REG_SZ"
 rv = WshShell.run("shutdown -r -t 5", 1)

Open in new window

thx.  
rather than user restricted groups via GPO or local policy, is there a way to have a script prompt for the domian user name and add this to the LA group on the computer?

Probably. I don't have one in my bag of scripts though.
