Q

Adding a group to local administrators group

How would you add a group to the local administrators group of all workstations in a domain using Group Policy? Can this be done? If not with GPO, what about VBS?
Yes, this can be done with the Restricted Groups function. However, there are some caveats. I recommend checking out a downloadable resource I have on GPanswers.com
