I'm looking to create a super user group for my site admin administrators. I need then to be able to restart print spoolers, set up machines, do general admin duties but I don't want them to have domain admin rights, What's the best permissions to give this group or does Windows have a default group just for this? Currently they all have domain access and i know this isnt the correct way to go as i dont want them looking anywhere and everywhere.
