ADUC

What are the liscence agreements around the ADUC console? I could use it on my machine for admin work but I am not sure if I need a liscence for it? Can anyone confirm?

Can I just check, can ADUC be used for updating AD related information, or is it more just a query/read-only tool. If it can be used for udating information, is that dependant on the users priveleges in the domain, i.e. typically any major updates would require domain admin rights.

I was just thinking worst case what can a basic user potentially do with ADUC, as if there is a risk I can see the request being put down...
Do not install ADUC for regulra users :) They don't need that, and could be scarry :) Regular users have read-only access in ADUC

When you are Enterprise/Domain Admin you have full read/write permissions. You can also delegate rights to other users and they will be able to manage that delegated part.

Sorry no it is for our audit team, by regular users I just meant users with no elevated permissions in the domain, i.e. just members of domain users, not domain admins...
OK, then. They will only have read-only access to objects in ADUC
