Local Users and Groups

Active DirectoryImage by arrayexception via Flickr

You hire temps to scan documents and print to a local printer in your office. The temps will be using one computer. Security settings do not permit the temps to access the local printer. The computer is a member of an Active Directory Domain and the all actions performed by the temps must be audited. What actions should be performed to allow the temps to print and to permit auditing of the temps activities?

Create five local user accounts. Because the temps will use only one computer, they will not have accounts in the domain.
Create a local group named Temps. You can then grant the Temps group access to the local printer.
Add each local account to the Temps local group.
Allow each Temp to log on using his or her local account. This allows audit settings to apply to the individual Temps.
