Here's the full title: RSA client install on W2K8 R2 via Group Policy with Scripted Options.
I'd like to create a group policy that will install the RSA client on new W2K8 R2 servers as they're joined to the network. Before the client can be installed I need to have a new local group created and have the local administrator account placed into that group. I'm hoping to create a script which allow all of this to be done via group policy.
1. To create the group I initially thought I'd use a batch file to create the group:
net localgroup "group name" /add
2. From here I'd have the account added to the new group:
net localgroup "group name" "user name" /add
3. I need to launch the RSA client installation via group policy using its .msi file.
I've run across some vBscript options:
4. This script creates the group and adds the user to the group.
strComputer = "atl-ws-01"
Set objGroup = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/group name")
Set objUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/user name")
This is looking to be two separate processes unless I choose to create a batch file and run it manually with the .msi files. So I'm wondering if anyone would have any ideas on how best to perform these steps using a group policy?
Any responses appreciated.

Just noticed this - and your post is over a month old - but in case you're still working on this, why not install using Group Policy (no need for local admin rights)?
No .msi installer file?
EDIT - no, I see you do have one. So why is it necessary to create a local group? Specific requirement of the software?
