Just to follow on jmoody, notice that there are two boxes, in your case you will want to use the top box "members of this group" and define who you want to be in the local admin group.

Test first and get a feel for it before deploying to production.

Thanks

This is the scenerio:

1) Administrators groups have 3 groups:

    . contoso/domain admins
    . contoso/help-desk
    . yoda

2) We want to remove all three of these existing groups and put in a new one.

   contoso/admin

How do we accomplish this?
