Adding Domain Users to the Workstation Power Users Group

What must I do to add domain users to the Power Users group?

The Power Users group is a group that is local to each Windows 200x/XP Professional workstation. You cannot add the Domain Users group to the Power Users group automatically, it must be done on each workstation by logging in as the local workstation administrator and then using the following procedure:

  1. Click Start -> Control Panel -> Users and Passwords.

  2. Click the Advanced tab.

  3. Click the Advanced button.

  4. Click Groups.

  5. Double-click Power Users. This will launch the panel to add users or groups to the local machine Power Users group.

  6. Click the Add button.

  7. Select the domain from which the Domain Users group is to be added.

  8. Double-click the Domain Users group.

  9. Click the OK button. If a logon box is presented during this process, please remember to enter the connect as DOMAIN\UserName, that is, for the domain MIDEARTH and the user root enter MIDEARTH\root.
