    Thank you all for the info, but I should have said that I have 1000 workstation to collect the local admin from, that is why I've been trying to come up with a script to pull the info from.

    Sorry
    John

    Right click on my computer, goto manage, then chose local users and groups,
    then groups, and dbl click administrator's, and the users listed is what you
    want

    Is there an easy way to find out what users are in the local admin group?
    The workstations are Win2k Pro SP4, I was thinking about using adduser from
    the resource kit, but it takes several lines of code to do it that way.

    Thank You
    John van Meter
