Scripting gurus.

I am stuck. I need a script when run on a server in Domain A, it adds domain groups to the local administrators group. If the server is in Domain B, it adds these groups. Here is what I have so far.
Thanks

Set objWMISvc = GetObject( "winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2" )
Set colItems = objWMISvc.ExecQuery( "Select * from Win32_ComputerSystem", , 48 )
For Each objItem In colItems
    strComputerName = objItem.Name
    
   strComputerDomain = LCase(objItem.Domain)
    If objItem.PartOfDomain Then
        WScript.Echo "Computer Domain: " & strComputerDomain
    Else
        WScript.Echo "Workgroup: " & strComputerDomain
    End If
Next
server = strComputerName
domain = strComputerDomain
-----------------------------------------------------

Set objLocalGroup = GetObject("WinNT://./Administrators")
Set objADGroup1 = GetObject("WinNT://DOMAIN1/DomainGroup1")
Set objADGroup2 = GetObject("WinNT://DOMAIN1/DomainGroup2")

Set objADGroup3 = GetObject("WinNT://DOMAIN2/DomainGroup3")

objLocalGroup.Add(objADGroup1.ADsPath)
objLocalGroup.Add(objADGroup2.ADsPath)
objLocalGroup.Add(objADGroup3.ADsPath)
Set objLocalGroup = Nothing
Set objADGroup = Nothing

Set objWMISvc = GetObject( "winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2" )
Set colItems = objWMISvc.ExecQuery( "Select * from Win32_ComputerSystem", , 48 )
blnInDomain = False
For Each objItem In colItems
	strComputerName = objItem.Name    
	strComputerDomain = LCase(objItem.Domain)
    If objItem.PartOfDomain Then
        blnInDomain = True
        WScript.Echo "Computer Domain: " & strComputerDomain
    Else
        WScript.Echo "Workgroup: " & strComputerDomain
    End If
Next
If blnInDomain = True Then
	Set objLocalGroup = GetObject("WinNT://./Administrators")
	If strComputerDomain = "domain1.local" Then
		Set objADGroup1 = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputerDomain & "/DomainGroup1")
		objLocalGroup.Add(objADGroup1.ADsPath)
		Set objADGroup2 = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputerDomain & "/DomainGroup2")
		objLocalGroup.Add(objADGroup2.ADsPath)
	ElseIf strComputerDomain = "domain2.local" Then
		Set objADGroup3 = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputerDomain & "/DomainGroup3")
	objLocalGroup.Add(objADGroup3.ADsPath)
	End If
	Set objLocalGroup = Nothing
