We are having a problem trying to add administrator rights from our domain as part of our Windows 7 silent install.
Currently, our install will install Windows, base software, rename and join the domain ok.
Has anyone worked out how to, and where to script this? Unattend file? Post install? Scripted in after the join domain (think it might be this, but unable to make something work).
We followed the KACE recommended guide for our join domain.

Thanks in advance!

P.S. Just about to start the three day weekend.. so might be a bit slower on checking this than usual...

We use Group Policy - Computer Configuration, Policies, Winows Settings, Security Settings, Restricted Groups. Add you administrators here as members of BUILTIN\Administrators.

You could make a batch script:

net localgroup "Administrators" "DOMAIN\USER" /add

and you use that line multiple times and it works. we do it in our silent install .
