Hello, we have a script that updates information on active directory for admin users. Not admin users are not able to update their own profile. is it possible to give them access to only update their AD profile? all comments are appreciated.

Can you use the HTA from here:
http://www.scriptinganswers.com/vault/AD%20Administration/

The second script is the HTA, just rename that frin VBS to HTA.

This HTA doesn't seem to change any delegation of accounts though....

Regards,

Rob.

thank you for your comment, I was able to use that code but unfortunatelly it gives me the same result, which is that the profile does not update.

Do you get any error with your VBScript if you just run a simple update?

Rob.
Set objAD = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & objAD.UserName)
objUser.TelephoneNumber = InputBox("Enter Telephone number:", "Telephone Number", "xxxx")
objUser.SetInfo
MsgBox "Done"

Hmmm, OK, remote directly into a Domain Controller, and run AD Users and Computers.
Go to a normal user account, and double-click it.  On the Security tab, see if SELF has necessary Write permissions, such as Write Personal Information and Write Phone and Mail Options
