  • local admin group members

    I am new to Hyena, just downloaded a copy yesterday. How do I find who has local admin rights to a group of computers. I know how to find who has local admin rights for a particular machine, but I need to find out who has local admin rights for all machines.

    Select your computers in Hyena's right window, then go to Tools->Exporter Pro->Export Selected Objects.
    Click the Settings button, then double-click on Windows NT/Local Group Members.
    Check the box to Export Group Members, then enter in an output file such as c:\groups.txt.
    Check the box to Only export information for groups listed in this file:
    Enter in a file name such as c:\grpmembers.txt and click Edit.
    Notepad should open and tell you the file doesn't exist, then ask you if you want to create it. Click Yes.
    In the file enter in Administrators then save the file and close Notepad.
    Click OK, then click Close, then click Start Export.
    When it is finished exporting you can open c:\groups.txt with Excel and you will see the members of the Administrators group for the selected computers

      When I tried doing your suggested steps, I get this error message saying that it is unable to open Hyena config file: c;\program files\hyena\hyena_exporter_pro.dat. I looked for this file but I can't find it.

        Are you on Windows 7? If so, it is picky about what is done under the program files directories. The easiest solution is to give yourself full control permissions to the Hyena directory.

        Another option would be to use the Run As Administrator option by right-clicking on Hyena.exe.

          Yeah, I am on win 7.

          Your suggestion of running it under admin works. Thanks..
