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

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!

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy
enough people to make it worth the effort.
