Hi Experts,

           I am working domain environment and I am very new to scripting . I need a PowerShell script to add the domain admin account to event Log Reader service on all computers(Windows 7 OS) which are already a member of Active Directory.

   FYI I am attaching a picture where exactly I want to add a Domain Admin.

     Thanks you,

Skip scripting, you can use GPO restricted groups on the computer configuration to add a group/user to be a member of this group.

Administrator/domain admins are commonly have this access.
