I have a account called Dameware Admins and it was created by someone else and granted way to many permissions.  I need to remove the right to delete or create an OU in AD, also the ability to delete Groups out of AD.  How can I reconfig this account without having to create a new one?

i assume this account is in the domain or enterprise admin group?  if so, simply remove it from these groups and then assign it whatever permissions it NEEDS to do whatever the account is used for.

whoever setup the account just gave it blanket domain admin access b/c that was the easiest way to set it up.

If there is audit enabled how do I view the logs?  Aren't they in Event Viewer- Security?

Also you delete something from a OU wouldn't that show only on the DC you're auth to?

hold up, your initial question asked how you remove the ABILITY to delete groups, etc etc, now you are talking about auditing and event logs.....

which do you want? a how to for permissions, or a how to on logging events?  b/c your initial question mentioned nothing about logging/auditing.

but yes, whatever you HAD logging turned on for will show up in the security section of the event viewer.
