file server/2003 - only want a user to have permissions to create home folders on server
Posted on 2010-08-22
Hello guys and thanks in advance for your time and expertise.
I have four or five users that I would like to have permissions to create home folders for users on our network (on our file server) and that's it.
The server is 2003 and we are at the functional level of 2003.
I have the file server in a servers OU and I went through the delegation of control wizard and that doesn't seem to be the answer for me. I guess I could give the users permissions on the root drive (where our home folders are located), but I just wanted to check here to see if I'm handling this in the best way. I guess what these users will need to do is log onto the fille server and then create home folders for users and that's all I want them to do. The previous admin had them in the Domain Admins group which is just nuts but that's the way it was. Anyway, please let me know your input and recommendations for handling this operation. Your help is greatly appreciated.
