I want to make a GPO such that certain domain and local accounts are in the local administrators group. How do I input a local user?
It is very easy to add a local user to a restricted group in group policy. Simply type the username by itself and that is it. Jeremy discusses this topic in Chapter 8 in his book and in his Group Policy training class.
The GPanswers.com forum is closed now (thanks, spammers!)
But we encourage you to join us at LinkedIn in the “GPO Stuff” group.
Jeremy is regular there, and there is a reasonable system to prevent junk posts.
In all, we think it’s the right place to go for Group Policy-specific questions.
It’s a private group, but just JOIN it, and the owner should approve your request.
See you there !
