We have a win2k3 standalone web server.  Is it possible to create a management account for someone to manage local server account but without giving him admin right?

Thanks.

They would have to be a local machine admin to manage local machine accounts no other builtin in group has those rights.

I am not so sure what kind of management you need in that server. After "Administrators groups", second powerful group in stand alone server is "Power Users". You can create a management account and make that account a member of "Power Users" group.

Coast-IT, I checked the tool you suggest but it does not have what we want - but close thou.
Are there VB script that people can run and create users without login as admin?
Thanks.
