What is the easiest way nowadays to delegate or give an office admin person the ability to change basic user details (eg job title, phone number) in Active Directory?

Are there any simple tools out there other than adminpak?

We're on a windows 2008R2 level domain.

I thought I'd check to see what others are using as I do not have too much time to investigate otherwise.

Nothing much has changed in terms of delegation and tools the office admin would use in 2008 R2.   You can use the delegation control wizard or you can get granular and go give them rights in AD just to change specific attributes.

You can also extend the delegation control wizard  http://adisfun.blogspot.com/2009/08/extend-ad-delegation-control-wizard.html

Not sure if you get Windows IT Pro Magazine but if you do checkout the cover story from Brian Desmond...good delegation paper.

Thanks

If you're on windows 2008R2 you can use the active directory admin center or you can use powershell cmdlets for managing.

You can also use powergui from quest to create your own powershell-based GUI  (http://powergui.org/)

cheers.

Looks like there is still no simple way to accomplish this task.

Thanks for the help - at least now I know....
