Ian- If you have GP Preferences in place, you can use GP directly to do that with the local users and groups feature-you don't even need a script. However, if you don't, then, assuming how many machines you have, I would just do this remotely using a tool like PSExec and some simple command lines, like this: net user joesmith password /add net localgroup administrators joesmith /add Darren From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Dowdle, Ian Sent: Tuesday, November 04, 2008 3:20 AM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Creating a local admin account I am not sure that this is the correct forum for this but here goes. Does anyone have a vbs script that will create a local user account and add that user to the local administrators group? Scripting is not my strong point!
