By default, Administrators and Account Operators can create computer accounts in a Windows domain.  How would I delegate "create computer account" permissions to user account that is not a member of Administrators or Account Operators?

    You can either do this through Group Policy, or through the Delegation of Control wizard.  Both options are described here:

    Assisted Solution

    Use the delegation of Corntrol Wizard. Right click on the OU (or domain) that you want to delegate control of and select "delegate Control"

    Select the user (or preferably group - its easier to manage) that you eant to delgate control to.

    You will then need to select "create Custom task" then press next and select "Compuer objects"
