Unable to delegate 'Replicate Now' function in AD Sites and Services

I want to give a AD group the ability to force an AD replication so they can go into the NTDS for a particular server in an AD site, right click on antoher server in that site and select Replicate Now.  I have run Delegate Control for every level in AD Sites and Services (Site Container, Site Name, Servers Container) giving this group full control at each step.  But when a user in this group performs the 'Replicate Now' they get the following error:

Replicate Now

The following error occurred during the attempt to sycnronize naming context Configuration from domain controller <DC1> to domain controller <DC2>:  Replication access was denied.

The operation will not continue.

Is there some other way to perfrom this function and/or what step am I missing?

I am running all W2K3 Domain Controllers in Native 2000 mode.

Windows Server 2003

They need to be Domain Admin or better to do this.

I knew that if a user was in the Doman Admins group that this function worked, I was looking to find a way to get the Replicate Now function to work if someone was _not_ in the Domain Admins group.

Glad that worked out.  Seems a bit overkill, but if that's what you need and it worked out then perfect.

Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

Thanks for the link, I posted the other comment without refreshing after you first comment.  Thanks Again.
