Hello friends, how can I make an Windows 2003 AD user a member of XP
workstation local Admins group. By default AD users don't have access to
many features on the xp machine. Is there a group policy setting that would
accomplish this task?

Thanks much.

Manual: Right-click My Computer > select Manage > expand Local Users and
Groups > Groups > Add the user to the Administrators group.

Check out the free win32 pages and look for LG. It allows remote
modification to localgroups via script.

You are searching the "restricted groups" inside a GPO.
There you can replace the actual local admins (which takes efect
even on the domain admin) or you can add them and the original
mappings are not involved.
