Hi Experts,

Local Admin account was renamed at Default Domain Policy to ADM1. Need to enforce Local Administrators group to have a specific users and groups in it.

How Sould I input local admin account in restricted group gpo? Should I just type in "ADMINISTRATOR" or "ADM1"?

Tks!

As you have mentioned that local administrator account is renamed not the local adminstrator group you can achieve the same as below.

There is a much easier way to accomplish what you want:
Create a group in AD and add required users to that group:
Set a startup script in group policy with the following line:
NET localgroup Administrators /add "domain_name\domain_group
That's it....the next time the computers are started, the group will be added to the local admin group.

If you want to configure restricted group refer this link:http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Using-Restricted-Groups.html

Use in GPO under Restricted Groups new admin name ("ADM1")
If you have at least one 2008R2/Win7 in your environment. it's much easier to use GPP (Group Policy Preferences) for that.
On 2003/XP client you need to install first CSE (Client Side Extension)

If you're interested with that, please let me know

Regards,
Krzysztof
