Hi guys hope you ate all well and can assist.
We are going thru a process of defining an OU hierarchy for delegation of administration.
We want to cater for scenarios such as:
1) User Bob located in North America is allowed to administer only North American Citrix Servers
2) User Sarah located in North America is allowed to administer all Citrix Servers globally
3) User Jim in Melbourne is allowed to administer ALL SQL servers hlobally.

My question is this:

Is it better to create an OU structure for server types for example, eg.
Member Servers
|____ Citrix Servers
              < all Citrix server computer accounts here>

Then create groups for each region of Citrix server required?
Eg. G_Citrix_asiapac, g_Citrix_Europe, g_Citrix_Americas

Any help on this greatly appreciated.

There is no right answer here but what I'd do is

Citrix Servers

    < North America Citirx Servers OU >
    < Europe citrix servers>
    <asia PAC ou>

Then create those groups and delegate rights to the appropriate OU.  Sara would be in all the groups while bob would only be in the North America Group.

Thanks

Mike
