By not adding the user to administrators, but just normal users with explicit rights of what he can do.
When modyfying passwords is not authorised, the user must be a power user, not an admin.

If you are using 200 do the following

Create a GPO that specifices password changes
Link the GPO to the domain , site or OU you are using
Use the filter policy for in the GPO and place the deny permission against the user in question
This will allow him/her to do all other admin tasks except change passwords

It would be much much easier to go into AD Users and Computers, right click on the Domain and choose Delegate and walk thru the wizard and just delegate authority to what you would like him to do. This way he can be a regular user but you can give him everything but the power to change passwords and you don't have to set up a policy to do it.

Mikecr - if the user is still needes to be in the administrators group then I am not sure what you are suggesting would work. Unless a specific deny is placed then wouldn't the permissions be cumulative and therefore any delegation be ignored if no specific deny was placed.

If you create joe blow user and the only thing he is is a domain user and you delegate tasks to him, you are effectively giving him the right to perform that task and that task only without adding to or detracting from. I like policies too, don't get me wrong, but I personally wouldn't create one for only a couple people that needed a little more power to do something. Delegation is a good way to go without going thru the mess of creating a policy that you will need to change by adding and removing people from.

You can also use the ADSI edit located on the Advanced servicer disk in the reskit folder.  Go into the domain partition and deny the user the ability to manage passwords.  They can still be an administrator without password management
