Q

Adding the security global group to a local computer group

How do I use my Windows 2003 Server Active Directory GPO to add the Security Global Group to the Computer Local Group?
The answer you seek comes from the Group Policy task called "Restricted Groups." Restricted Groups are found under Computer Configuration | Security Settings | Restricted Groups. You'll be able to simply enter in the name of the local computer group you want, then add in users you want to guarantee to be members of the group!
