Col, see below for an answer that I gave previously, this seem to be very 
common question J








Actually it is both possible to both mirror and add, the latter is done using 
the  "This group is a member of:" part of the Restricted Groups settings, but 
you have to select the groups in "reverse" order, i.e. first the group you want 
to add and then where you want it, while in the normal case you select the 
group to manage and then who should be in it.


So if you for example want to have Domains Admins added to the local 
Administrators group, you select Add Group... in the Restricted Groups node, 
then select Domain Admins from your domain and in the "This group is a member 
of:" you select the Administrators group. Remember to select the local computer 
in the Object Picker when you browse for the local group.

Subject: [gptalk] Restricted Groups - appending to local administrators


Is there a way to *add* a member to the local administrators group on a member 
server using Restricted Groups?  I know that, normally, a Restricted Group 
policy will remove any existing members and replace them with those set in the 
policy.  But what I'd like to do is use Restricted Groups to extend the list 
i.e. leave the existing members as they are...
