How to set up a limited MMC for delegated administration of an OU

Picture the scene .... I have several OUs created for teams in my organisation. I have delegated control of User Account admin to a responsible member of each team. I opened a blank MMC and added the Users and Computers snap-in, and predictably the whole AD is listed.

How can I trim this snap-in so that only a designated OU is shown for any given junior admin.

HI

I'm able to add the Create User command after creating the Task Pad, but not the other tasks, namely:

Create, delete and manage user accounts
Reset user passwords and force password change at next logon
Read all user information
Modify the membership of a group.

Thanks

Put one user account (or group) in OU to which you have delegated this tasks, and the repeat the process of adding new Task. Most tasks are menu based, so select Menu command on second step and on next windows select appropriate task. Even if you don't create buttons (shortcuts) for all tasks, user will be able to perform them using right click or double click.
