I have an admin that's not ready to be a domain admin of our AD evirnoment but I would like to grant him permissions to move computers from the default 'Computers' container to my workstations OU. Can someone tell me how I can acheive this? I tried the Deleagte control function but I was weary which permissions should be granted from that menu.

    You can give this a try:

    On each OU, Computers and Workstations OU:

    Delegate Control Wizzard

    Select User, perferrably a group

    Create a custom task to delegate

    Only the following objects in the folder

    Computer Ojects

    Check Create and Delete selected objects in this folder

    Select Full Control

    Hi there,

    as per

    To move an object between two OUs, the administrator performing the move must have the ability to create the object in the destination container and to delete the object from the source container.
