Local Group added to local Administrators group

Local Group added to local Administrators group

Hi
We are using Windows XP clients in a Active Directory. With the use of Group
Policys we have created a local group named "LocalAdmins" this group is then
added with Group Policy to the local Administrators group. The reason we do
this is to autmaticly add some groups to the local Administrators group.

But members (Active Directory Members) of the local group doesn't get local
administrator privileges.

How do I get members in a local group wich is added to the local
Administrators group to get Administrator priviledge by only adding a local
group?

Please Help
Jonas

Create a global group and add that to the local administrators group on the
computers that you want this to happen to. After Group Policy refresh verify
that the global group is indeed in the local administrators group on the
domain computer. Add the users that you want to be local administrator on
those computers to your global group. --- Steve

Hi
I using the same Group Policy on 1000 clients. In the Group Policy I use
restricted groups to add the Helpdesk global group to the local Administrator
group.

The problem is that if I would add another Global Group for users that
should be Administrators on their own client using restricted groups and then
adding the users that should be Administrators on their clients to the new
Global group I would end up with users that are not only Adminstrators on
their own clients but on all clients.

Do you know how I can solve this?
