Group

Last Updated: 12/12/2016

Group specifies the name of an existing local security group to which a new LocalAccount will be added during installation. You can add a user to multiple groups by entering multiple group names separated by semicolons.

The Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup component recognizes the following English group names and sets the appropriate localized group name, regardless of the default language of the Windows image:

  • AccountOperators

  • Administrators

  • BackupOperators

  • Guests

  • PowerUsers

  • PrintOperators

  • Replicator

  • SystemOperators

  • Users

Specify the account names and group names by using language-neutral names. The language-neutral account and group names are specified in English—for example, Administrators, Power Users, and Guest. This is required because the shell account settings are processed before a default user interface (UI) language is applied to the computer.

Values

Group_name

Specifies the existing local security group for the local account. More than one group can be specified (separated by semicolons). Group_name is a string with a maximum length of 256 characters.

This string type supports empty elements.
