Controlling group for new user account

Post by Pat Litt » Sat, 20 Apr 2002 04:18:54



When a new user account is created (on Win2k Pro) it is assigned
membership of the group "Power Users". I want to be able to control
this - to define, say, that all new users will be in the
"administrators" group. How can I do this?

TIA,
Pat Little

Easiest way is to set up a default user which is a member of all the groups
you want with the profile etc set up as you want it, and then copy that user
to create new users.

Thanks, Jason, that will work for accounts I create manually. But the
case I am trying to cover is this: when I join the machine to a domain
I log into the domain using my account there, and this causes my
machine to create a new account called "username.domainame". This new
automatically created account has Power User rights but I want it to
be an Administrator. Right now I can change this with Computer
Management (run as.. administrator) and add the domain account to my
administrator group. The reason I want to automate this is because
many people in my company will be doing this and I don't really want
to have them all go through this process every time they join a new
domain when they travel from office to office.

1. Delegating password account lockout control to a user/group

Hi,

Does anyone know the correct procedure to allocate a user
or group the right to reset a password or unlock a locked
account?

I have given the user rights in ther delegation wizard rd
wr permissions in the delegation wizard for account
lockout, but when I log on as the user and open up the
customised mmc console to reset passwords or unlock
accounts for a OU, I either get an access denied or the
account lockout dialog box is greyed out.

Thanks,

Pacer
