Hello Experts,

I'd like to create an account for a junior admin person but would only like to give him access to reset account passwords, reset account lockouts, etc...   but would not want to use a domain admin account.  What's the best method/way to provision such an account?  I don't want to give the admin too much permissions, but just enough to provide helpdesk password reset ability.

Good move definitely don't give him domain admin rights.  You can use the delegation control wizard in ADUC to give him rights.  You can also extend the delegation control wizard

In that entry I have links to the Microsoft delegation docs.
If the junior admin ever control all aspects of accounts you can also add him to "account operators"...note account operators can't change/modify the DA group..that is a good thing
Thanks
Mike
