Hi Experts,

I have set up a server for deployment.
With the basic tasks it is working fine.
I have running two scripts.

But now I want to know which features are the best and necessary to deploy ?
What kind of tips you have for this ?

Is it possible to deploy a special computer name in a range ?

You can create answer file using windows AIK which will add machine to domain and later create gpo to add domain user to local admin group

Once the machine is join to domain you can add users to local admin group by restricted group GPO.Ensure that restricted group policy is configured correctly else it will not only add required members to local Administratiors, but it will remove any members that were in local Admins previously.You need to select the bottom box under "This Group is a member of," so it won't wipe out current members on all machines.http://www.frickelsoft.net/blog/?p=13

Alternately you can add users/groups to local admin by script.
NET localgroup Administrators /add "domain_name\domain_Userid"
NET localgroup Administrators /add "domain_name\domain_group
