RE: Delegation of Administration

I have a question regarding delegation of administration.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

If an administrator uses the Delegation of Administration Wizard and assigns certain administrative rights to a user account and/or group over a set of OUs in Active Directory, is there a way for me to view which group or user has been delegated rights and see what those rights are?  I have inherited an AD environment that needs to be cleaned up but I'm not sure if Microsoft has a native tool where I can see this and revoke any rights that a user or group should not have.  Is there a native tool or a third party tool (e.g. Quest Software ActiveRoles) that I can use to manage this?  

Thanks!!

The tool comes with AD: it's the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC. Just change to Advanced from the View menu, and you'll get a security tab in the properties of the AD objects. From there on, it's basically like NTFS.
