That's the admin nightmare :-)

If you have 500 computers to admin, how do you remove Tom's admin rights?

The best way is:

- Create a new domain group.
- Add users to new domain group.
- Add this new domain group to the local administrators group on each machine.

Now, every user in "new domain group" will have admin rights in the computers.

If for some reason you think John Doe does not need admin rights
anymore, you just remove him from the "new domain group"
