Graham-
Restricted Groups has two modes--one mode is an exclusive membership thing
and you can't merge group members, either between GPOs or with existing
members. However, the other mode is not exclusive, and lets you add a given
group to another groups, such as local administrators. This is the so-called
"Members of" part of the policy. That should solve your issue here. Let us
know if that doesn't work.

Subject: [gptalk] restricted groups - MERGE

i am sure this one has already been asked 'seven million times' but ..

want to leverage the restrictied groups, such that policy dicates that
certain
global groups are added to 'local administrators' group of machines to which
policy
is linked.

common issue is that to define this policy causes issues with servers some
of which
have non-standard security and removes anything not defined by the policy.

just wanted to check no recent extensions to the client side processing of
GPO's
such that we can now set this policy in some sort of 'merge' mode whereby
listed
groups are merged with existing entries.

it is just that i read somewhere on an acquistion by MS of a 'Desktop
standard' in
which said capability is functional.
