We have several PC'S and laptop's connected to our Win2k3 active directory domain. We need to find out which users have beeN added to their local machines administrator group.

Is there a way to do this without asking users or without going to each users desktop and laptop or with remoting into each individual PC or Laptop?

if you do not need a list of users who are in local admin group on domain computers you can use GPO to define who should be in that group and apply that GPO accross your domain. That wipe all all non authorized users from local admin group.

Hi Bern,
Any update from above suggestion ?
Alternatively, you can have give a try to this automated option(http://www.activedirectoryauditing.net/) which seems good sound to audit and find out which users have been added to their local machines administrator group. You can collect and analyze all the critical changes made in AD with this software.
