Set New User Security Defaults

Posted on 2006-04-25

I need all new users created in active directory to have read/write permissions on their own account settings.  How can I change it so that the user "SELF" has read/write permissions by default without having to manually change this every time a new user is setup?  Thanks.

    Hi mnmorency,

    "on their own account settings"

    can you clarify?

    If you right-click a user and go to Properties, then security, I want the user SELF to have read/write.  By default they only have read.  I don't want to have to go in and manually check off write every time.  Thanks.

    just create a default user customised how you like and disable it,

    when you create a user, just copy that disable profile an rename it as you want....
