Looking for a way to remove 1 local account. Add an account with a password, set it to never expire and add it to the local admin group.


The account I need to remove is ctc and I need to add ctcpoweruser to the local admin group. If this can't be done with WMIC using some other command would be fine. I will be passing this all through a bat file that will psexec it out to all workstations
