Power User rights

Hi,
We are using Windows server 2003 domain controllers. I want to give Power User rights to some users on all workstations in our organization using GPO. \
Please suggest me how to do this.
Thanks in advance.

Create a domain group called "Workstation Power User Permission".  Place the users you want to have power user rights into this group.  Create a GPO at the OU level where your domain workstations exist.  In the GPO you need to configure Restricted Groups for the Power User Group.  Follow the bellow articule:

It does refere to the admins group though

Hi,

The above procedure is for Administrators. When I am trying to add power users as a restricted group I am not able to see the power users group in the default groups.
Please suggest me how to add this group.

When you add the restricted group don't browse, just type in Power Users.  This will get created then add your domain group to this.

There is no power user groups in windows 2003 & you will not be able to browse it.
I would suggest adding it to local administrators groups is fine using restricted group GPO settings.
