Delegation of Manage Documents right

As the topic suggests, I have a client with a mid-size environment, and they want to delegate the right to reset print jobs on all network printers. Print Operators won't do since it gives too much power. Of course this can be done manually printer by printer, but an easier solution would be nice since there are hundreds of printers. Any suggestions?

You can use Active Directory Users and Computers to delegate this right to any user you want. Your all printers must be listed in Active Directory and then find printer and select Security Tab to assign the rights you want.

Does it make sense?

Let me know.

It would help by first creating a security group that you can use for this purpose.  Then, in AD Users & Computers, click on View > Users, Groups and Computers as Containers to see all your printers.  If they are within the same container, you can add the new security group to that container's permissions and select the level of control you want.

If they aren't in the same container, you'll have to apply the new security group to each place that printers exist.
