Paul Contreras

Hi, my name is Paul and I am a Sysadmin who enjoys working on various technologies from Microsoft, VMWare, Cisco and many others. Join me as I document my trials and tribulations of the daily grind of System Administration.


  1. I somehow have changed the name for the Administrators group in the Computer Management console when creating the group to add the GPO rule to. Also, it seems that all my admin accounts are gone. Should i just reinstall AD and basically rebuild my environment? Any help you can offer is appreciated.

  2. Hi,

    can we create restricted/low-privileged rules for the Junior System administrator as set role-based access

  3. How can I add built-in Network Service As a member of a group on all machines as a part of GPO?

  4. Is it possible to add local administrators with a powershell skript or is it only possible through the GUI?

    • From and elevated command prompt
      Net localgroup administrators “User Name” /add

  5. Is there a way to force the users from the GPO into the actual local users section on the PC? This way the admin users can log in when there is no connection to the domain?
