  • Exporting a list of Local Administrators

    I was wondering if it was possible to use Exporter Pro to export a list of users that are ONLY listed as Administrators on our domain.

    Our group policy is to have our users only created as Power Users within the XP Environment, and want to make sure that users do not have Administrator access unless specified.

    We have 3000+ users in our domain and to export each user to see which are administrators would be too time consuming.

    If there is a way to just export the list of users on the domain that are listed as Administrators, that would be excellent.

    Any input appreciated.

    Are you looking for users that are members of the local Administrators group on your computers?

      Yes, exactly.

      I am looking to find users on our domain who are locally given administrator rights via the Local Administrator group.

        Here are some instructions:

        Select your computers in Hyena's right-hand 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.
        Choose Local Group Members Only.
        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.

            Works great, however - we have several Admin domain groups that are frequent on every Workstation.

            Is it possible to filter out certain groups from being exported?

            ex. domain_ex_admin is listed on every workstation. There is no need for it to export this group, since we know its a constant. I would like to filter this.

              Unfortunately there's no way to do that. You would have to filter the output file using Excel or Access.
