Nova

net group command

5 posts in this topic

I found this on microsoft.com and im having a bit of trouble getting it to work

To add the existing user Nova to the Administrators group on the local computer, type:

So I typed this into cmd

net group Administrators Nova /add

I dont understand why this wont work, the user Nova is in the group Users shouldnt this command move Nova to the group Administrators ?

I get this msg after typing the above "More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3515"

OS:WINXP

Any ideas ?

Maybe you should read the whole error message or try to enter "net helpmsg 3515" as it tells you to do.

The error message is

This command can be used only on a Windows Domain Controller.

Everything clear?

I use this

$KEY = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"

RunWait(@Comspec & " /c " & 'net user Michael /add', "", @SW_HIDE)
RunWait(@Comspec & " /c " & 'net localgroup Administrators Michael /add', "", @SW_HIDE)
RunWait(@Comspec & " /c " & 'net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited', "", @SW_HIDE)

RegWrite($KEY, "DefaultUsername", "Reg_SZ", "Michael")
RegWrite($KEY, "DefaultPassword", "Reg_SZ", "")
RegWrite($KEY, "AutoAdminLogon", "Reg_SZ", "1")

Oops, you may not need the AutoAdminLogon RegWrite line.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I've used this on workstations without any issues:

RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c net localgroup Administrators /add ' & $NETWORKDOMAINGRP, @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)

edit: just re-read above, sorry for reposting what had been said, didn't catch the first post's diff... (group instead of localgroup :ph34r: )
