    Hello all,

    I've got a 10.6.4 server I'm about to deploy, and everything is running great. One thing I ran into, however, is that admin access on the server isn't automatically inherited on the workstations.

    I did find a manual way of doing this (per workstation) by logging into the workstation as the user I want to promote, opening system prefs, accounts, then clicking the "Allow user to administer this computer" checkbox.

    Anyway, so I have a Open Directory group called "netadmins"... and I want all the members of this group to be local admins of each workstation that is bound to the Open Directory server. If there is indeed a way to do this automatically, how do I go about it?
