Default Local Admin on all machines and add comp to domain

Hello all,

I have been doing some research on how to do these two things, but I don't seem to be having much luck on these specific issues. I currently have domain admins, which of course has all of the system administrators. I recently created a group called Desktop Support, which will house the...can we guess...desktop support people.

I need this desktop support group to have two things:
  1. The ability to add computers to the domain.
  2. Setup the group as a local administrator on all client PCs (not servers).

As for my computer name structure, they are in different OUs. So when I add a machine to the domain, it ends up in the Computers folder. After that, I move the computer into a different OU called either Laptop, Desktops or Servers.

Thank you for taking a look and reading. If you have any suggestions, I thank you in advance.
