Read Only User for AD Schema

Posted on 2011-03-18
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Is there a way to place a small number of users in a AD group that would give them read only access to the AD schema?  Might have to create a group if there is not a built-in AD group.  Don't want to put them in the Domain Administrator group.

What do you need them to see, are there confidential attributes they need access to? If it is just the standard schema they can install the RSAT or Admin tools depending on OS and register the schema management dll
"regsvr32 schmmgmt.dll"
then add the AD schema to the MMC.

All users can read the schema already.  All they need is the console.
