Systems Management Question

local admin rights for users

06/20/2017 1201 views
Hi All

I need some assistance, I would like to setup an OU named Local admins. In the OU I would like to create groups each group will be named example "L1155-localadministrator" "D2434-LocalAdminstrator etc... and in those groups a user or users of a specific machine will be in it and they will have local admin rights to that specific machine. I found a blog that gave instructions on doing this using group policy Computer configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Restricted Groups.

But that is not what i am after as i want the groups in my OU to be specific for the machine and user. really desperate here any help would greatly be appreciated.

  • Thank you the article is very informative. I've used the restricted groups setting and it is difficult to manage. I will try the GPP method.
    • Hi now i have another issue. I would like to setup an account for all my machines. this account should not be created as a domain account but rather a local machine account but pushed via group policy is that something i can do? Would greatly appreciate any help
