Use within that GPO node named Restricted Groups. You can read more abot that in the Internet because it's inconvenient placing links on a mobile ;)

If you have at least one Win7/2008 you can use Group Policy Preferences for that, but firstly you need to install Client Side Extension on XP/ 2003 machine. I will post links a little bit later or you can google for that. Thanks

Regards,
Krzysztof

So, in my opinion it's better to use GPP. Instal CSE on each XP/2003 and create GPP on a 7 import to 2003 GPO and link to OU(s).

GPP information aboy that
http://www.grouppolicy.biz/2010/01/how-to-use-group-policy-preferences-to-secure-local-administrator-groups/

CSE for XP

CSE for 2003
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=6955

you can install that update from WSUS

If you don't want to use GPP, then use Restricted Groups

Nope, this link from Mike's blog is for filtering GPO appliance :) He needs to restrict membership of local Administrators group on a server/PC :]
