Delegate control so users can add computers to a domain
Posted on 2005-04-22
We have a domain named ERL.emhiser.internal. I was wondering if you could give me step-by-step instructions on how to delegate the ability to ERL\Users to add computers to the ERL.emhiser.internal domain. In Active Directory I can see that by right clicking on the ‘Users’ folder you can select Delegate Control and the ‘Delegation of Control Wizard’ comes up. From there I need some info on what to specify for users and groups, the object type, and the permissions.
We need to delegate this control so we can add existing computers to the domain. An associate of ours had done this previously and it allowed us to add the computers to the domain without using the ADMT for migration. Bottom line is that we need to migrate these computers to a newly established domain of the same name as the previous. (The previous DC had a catastrophic failure and the backup also failed!) We just want to be able to transfer the computers so that we don't have to migrate the user accounts that exist on the computers. Thanks in advance for the help.
