How can the right of removing computers from a domain can be given to a group of users? I have noticed that local administrator is able to remove computers from the domain, however once the computer is remove AD is not aware of the change so the computer is not removed or any Red X appears either.

I have also notice that if a regular user (domain user) does it the computer does not get removed but a Red X appears on AD for that specific computer. Same happen if the user if domain user is added to the local admin on that particular workstation.

I know a domain user byt default is able to join up to 10 machines to the domain. But would a domain by default a regular user account able to separte a computer account from the domain?

If not how would it be possible to allow the members of a Security Group to be able to remove computers from AD (add them to a workgroup), so when the computer gets removed from that domain the Red X will appear on AD.

I have tried but it didn't work.

How do you disjoin a computer from your domain, in other words what user account does your helpdesk/analyst has on AD.
A regular users can't disjoin a computer from AD. But a local admin user could do it, if that is the case I have notice that the computer account will not be shown as DISABLED.

So far using delegation over the Computer OU does not give the right to the user to disjoin the computer from AD (right click my computer and when going to CHANGE it's grey out.

In order to do that what level of access does your user account has when disjoining the compt accout from the domain?
