I think SBS 2008 uses group policies to control local administrator
group membership. You can also do it the old-fashioned way, but I think it
could get confusing if done both ways; in fact I did get confused. In any
case, I'm a firm believer in "no local adminstrators, period, no
exceptions," so it's one of those things that's just slightly annoying and I
start to ask, "why did they need to change it?"
