I have Enterprise Admin Rights, and I have many people that want to do things all the time with there own OU. That is OK, but I want to control and have those individual manage there own OU's.

I know, Deligate! and I have read that but how to maintain those boundrys - some similar Active Directory for Dummies explains a little and they are close but far from my requirements above.

Either OU admin's, must not have the rights or power to do anything in each others OU, Except for the OU manger or OU Admin what ever you want to call him...

As you said: delegate. Create a global group for an OU and grant some administrative rights on this OU to the group. Put regular users (NOT domain-admins) into this group and you're done. Repeat for each OU.
Yes, this is a bunch of work to do.

Continuing ostaehr's comment a little. When your in the delegation wizard just select "custom task" -> This folder, existing objects in this folder and creation" -> Under permissions select "Full Control".
Now this will give that group full control over every object in the OU and any OU underneath this point. If you're wanting ot grant only specific tasks to these individuals then that needs a different approach.

So Iscapa, If I understand you correctly, when you give full control to every object in the OU does that also give you permission to add computers to that OU as well?

Ostaehr - That was so uninformative, next time I would recommend that you provide a little spice with your answers.
I know your trying to help, but please be a little more discriptive.
