Hi,
This is a windows 2003 active directory domain.  I need to setup an office manager to not only change passwords, but to add and change certain fields in the user object, such as
GENERAL TAB:DESCRIPTION, OFFICE, TELEPHONE NUMBER, WEB PAGE
ADDRESS TAB: ALL
TELEPHONE NUMBERS TAB: ALL
ORGANIZATION TAB: ALL

I am almost done, in fact I can do either "create/delete/manage check bo" or "reset password box".  If I give the create/delete, I am home free, yet they can delete the user accounts which I don't want.  I can't find a way to just do the fields above without given them access to the rest.
I already got help with posts - Q_21645396.html

Is this possible?  Or so I just let them have full access to those OU user accounts?
Thanks,
Berne

In the View menu in ADUC, change the view to Advanced. This will add the Security tab to the objects' properties.
Open the properties of the OU where you already delegated permissions; you'll find entries for the group you delegated control to. Allow read/write access for the attributes you require.
Here's something you might need anyway, in addition to changing passwords; it's how to grant the Unlock Account permissions, which you can use as example for the other permissions as well. Note that in Server 2003, you can ignore the part about editing dssec.dat to be able to see lockoutTime, this is visible in Server 2003 by default.

Whoops!   Forgot to Accept this.   This totally worked.  It took some tweaking but once I could see the individual rights I was able to control them.
Thanks,
