Standard users don't have permission on services like DHCP or DNS.

If you really want these people to be able to manage DHCP and AD then you will have to asign them the Administrator role.
You need to be very careful here - you don't normally want all many users to have these rights - limit access onlt to those people who really need the role.

I understand that you would want to limt who have full access but when I seleted John and gave right to him nothing changes even after a reboot. I would chnage teh account name that has full right but an fearful that will cause even more issues or will stop us from all having access.

please do not set the primary group to Domain Admins like jerseysam said, this will give you all other kind of problem like SBS will give you an error the user is no Exchange Administrator, and some other issues, see here for details: http://blog.ronnypot.nl/?p=860


About your issue check within AD users and computers if the account has the same group membership as your account, SBS uses a lot of groups to arrange permissions and settings.

Okay solved but that has brought another issue! So I went to AD and right clicked the user that has the correct rights and copy. That worked fine but that user doesn’t appear ion the SBS console.

This is because the user is not in the right OU or does not have an user role attached. See this article: http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2008/09/22/why-are-some-of-my-users-not-displaying-in-the-sbs-console.aspx
