grouppolicy.jpg?fit=524%2C301

If you want certain members to be local administrators of computers, you can do it through Group Policy. The idea here is to create a Local Admin security group and then a GPO that adds that security group to the local Administrators group of the computer.

CREATE THE SECURITY GROUP

  1. Open Active Directory Users and Computers
  2. Select your Security Group OU
  3. Right Click and select New > Group
  4. Give the Group a name, I used “Helpdesk_Engineers”
