Local domain Admin

I need to create a group policy if possible to Add a Local Admin user on all machine in my domain.

In Windows 7, Local Administrator is disabled by default. I need through group policy create a new user XYZ to be Local Admin.

Is it feasible and how?

1. On your domain controller, open Active Directory Users and Computers, edit the default domain policy (not recommended) or create new policy (recommended).
2. Locate Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Restricted Groups.
3. Right click and select Add Group. Add the group "Administrators" and click OK.
4. In Members of this group, click Add. Add the specific user. Then click Add in "This group is a member of:" and add the "Administrators" group. Click OK to apply.
5. On client computer, run the command "gpupdate /force" to refresh group policy.
You can add users to the Local Administrators groups via "Restricted Groups" group policy settings.
