Local Admin for Mac3.1

21 July 2007

Makes currently logging in user a local admin.

What is Local Admin for Mac

Local Admin provides you with an easy way to install a package that will make the currently logging in user a local admin on the computer. It checks to see if the user exists in Open Directory in a group named \"administration\" (this must be the exact short name of the group in Open Directory - without quotes). If that user exists in that group, they are added to the local admin group on the machine they are logging into, so that they can do anything a local admin can do on the specific workstation. As soon as you take this user out of the group in Open Directory (and they log out of the machine), they will be removed from the local admin group on the workstation. This way, you can somewhat dynamically give users local admin access, if needed, without having to touch any of the machines.

Not to nitpick, but this would have been a bit easier to use if the list of potential admin users was a text file. That way, the main admin doesn't have to delve into Directory services just to add a potential admin user. Just add the name to the text file. I can see where this might be of use to some folks out there in the wild. Cool idea. :)
