Have an environment with multiple locations. They want to delegate administrative fuction to various local support users at each site.

Is it possible to restrict admin permissions bas on certain IP ranges?

OR

Is it possible to give someone administrative rights on all computers in an OU (can't see how to do this in GP), without adding them manually to each server/PC local admins group.

You could attach a Group Policy to each AD Site and use the Restricted Groups function of GP - never tried to do it this way

But better still you can also do this by structuring your AD in a fashion where your OU hierachy represents your geographical locations and then link in group polices from there that will grant the appropraite permissions, using the restricted groups functionality mentioned above

Perfect scenario for the delegation of control feature...you delegate based on OU

Than i would use restricted groups as mentioned above
