I need to create a local admin and password on about 32 machines. I was going to do this through Group Policy but the new Server 2008 patch does not allow me to create a user password.

I'm not familiar with psexec but I have been told you can use it to do this.

Anyone have other ideas?

I doubt that it will.

Let me ask you this question.

What are you trying to accomplish? Then maybe we can figure out how we can help.

I have been using group policy on 2008 and it's been OK so far (Win7 clients).

What patch is the problem?

Here's an MSDN link to how to do it.

thinking on it. why would you create a local admin on domain computers.

Just assign a user to the domain administrator group so they have admin rights on the systems.

Then log in as the user.

The computers are on a lab cart for use in a media classroom. The department requires that they have a local admin account that they specified. Apparently Microsoft made a patch for 2008 that will not allow you to create a user and password through GP because of a security flaw (probably clear text). In the GP dialog box, it will allow you to enter a user name but the password section is grayed out.
