Delegating Control is Gray Out

Okay. Here is my setup.

I have two domain controlers using the same name flepak.com.  Replication works find.  I delegated control to a jr. administrator.  I logon as the Jr. Administrator and try to change the password and I get an access deny.  No matter what I try, I can get this jr. adminstrator to delegate his own OU.

What Am I doing wrong?

Did you make sure that you ran Delegate Control from the OU that the user accounts are in?

Thanks for the fast response.

Yes, I am applying delegation at the OU.  Then I logon on as the user whom I delegated control to.  I go to the OU and I notice that I can reset passwords, add users, add groups, etc for any of the users in the OU.  But I can't change any of the settings for the user I gave control to.  All the attributes for this Help Desk Admin are gray out.  Is this normal?

Is it safe to say, the following is true?  

When I delegate control to the Help Desk Admin at his OU, as the administrator I control what that Help Desk Admin can do.  And then the Help Desk Admin controls the objects within his OU, but can not contol his account due to the fact that he is under my control?  Hope this makes sense.

Respectfully,

Luis M. Rodriguez, MCP.

Hello Luis,

Is the admin located in the OU that he is delegated control over?

Yes the Help Desk Admin is part of the OU.  There are a tool of 18 users in the OU, but I can not change any of the settings for the Help Desk Admin.  Is this normal or am I doing someting wrong?

I've heard that this is normal because you don't want the help desk admin to add himself to a more powerful group.  I think you have to move him out of the OU for him to control himself.  I'll try to find some documentation to confirm.
