Simple Way to Add a Domain User to a Local Group

Sometimes I have trouble using the GUI for adding users to local groups. When I start Computer Management, select a local group and try to add a domain user, the user is not found. (“The following object is not from a domain listed in the Select Location dialog box, and is therefore not valid:”)

A simple way that works is to use the following command:

NET LOCALGROUP “group name” “DOMAIN\Account” /add
