Add a security group to a Local Admin group of a virtual machine

  I have Dell Server PowerEdge R510 with the Windows server 2019 Operating System.
 This server hosted several Virtual Machines. The name of this server is “Server6”
There is a virtual machine called “VM-MFA”
In the Active Directory (User and computer), there is a security group called “MFA”
I have got both access permission to “Server6” and “VM-MFA”
The Goal: I must ADD this security group “MFA” to the Local Admin group of this virtual machine “VM-MFA”.
Somebody would show me how to do it please.

Is Server6 a member of the domain?

I would do it with PowerShell.

On the VM-MFA vm, open PowerShell elevated then enter:
Add-LocalGroupMember -Group Administrators -Member $env:userdomain\MFA

Open in new window
