Unable to edit details of 'contact' users for Account Operators group

Hello,

I've got some users in the Account Operators group, and I'm trying to allow them to change user details. Normal user accounts are fine, but contact objects are greyed out.

I've chosen to delegate control to the whole domain to encompass all OUs, and selected all check boxes (as a start) but the users are still unable to modify contact objects.

What details are they trying to change?
Some attributes only apply to users - not to contacts

All fields are greyed out, from the name fields on the general tab, along with address, telephones and organisation.

Hi martinhewes,

When delegating permissions to manage users the Account Operators group should be used. After adding a user account to the Account Operators group the added user has the permissions needed to create/manage/delete Users, Groups and Computers in the domain. Members of the Account Operators group do not have the permissions to create or manage Account objects.
 
If the permission needed to manage Contact objects is needed by members of the Account Operators it should be explicitly granted by using either the Delegation Wizard or manually.

I hope this assist you with your issue.
