  • add a new group to multiple computers

    I have approx. 70 file servers and I would like to add a new group into each servers local administrator group. I've been playing with Hyena and poking around this message board but haven't seen anything that jumps out. Can this be done and if so how??
    Thanks,

    Yes, this can be done with Hyena. Hyena's right-hand window supports selecting multiple objects, so display your servers in the right window, then select those that you want to modify.

    Right-click and choose More Functions->Add/Remove Group Member.

      excellent, thanks!! Do you know if this will work across multiple domains?? I have an old NT 4.0 domain and a Win2K3 AD forest and I'm trying to add a group from the AD into the servers still on teh 4.0 domain.

      Thanks again for the help,

        As long as you have a trust between the domains you should be okay.

          Outstanding!!! Originally it wouldn't work but I guess I hadn't waited long enough for the replication to take place (following the group creation).

          Thank you so much for your help,

            Bit confused. Can you "create" a local group on several workstations, for instance, by selecting several workstations in the right hand window and then create say, MyLocalGrp on each of those computers where a local group does not already exist?

              That has to be done one computer at a time.
