Do you have users of Windows 2000 and XP Professional computers removing the Domain Administrators group from the local Administrators group on their computer? Do you need to have a special user account placed in the Administrator group of every computer on the network for remote administrative functions? These are common problems that most network administrators face in a Windows environment. The main problem is that it is hard to control the membership in the local groups on clients and servers throughout the enterprise. If you are a medium or large sized organization, you might have thousands of clients and hundreds of servers that you need to manage. Manually trying to manage all of the local groups on all of these computers is difficult, and almost impossible.
