How to add new administrator account on domain computers from GPO
Posted on 2011-10-13
We have a domain with 2 server 2008 x64 std DCs, and cca 65 clients. We are trying to install some software remotely, it asks for an admin user/pw who can install to all pc's. But, not all the client computers have the same local administrator set, and the domain admin account seems to work randomly. Is there any way to force create a new admin account on all the clients through Group policy? The install always fails with the same "Access denied" error, and the log shows that username/password is invalid. However some clients accepted the install, and successfully finished the process. I already installed a brand-new test client with this admin account, and worked like a charm on xp, vista, 7 too.
Tried everything a hundred times, and for the sake of microsoft, remote desktop is working on every client with the same user...So not firewall issue, not RPC issue, not account issue.
I have to try to re-create a user with such privileges on every PC, so this is the main problem.
