I need to find some solution that meets a specific functionality...price is not the problem :)

The Managers* of a team can access the active directory (browser access) and need to have permissions only to set the logon hours permission of single users, specific security groups or OU's.

* Managers are domain users, no special permissions in domain.

Any sugestions?

Can you not delegate permissions to the Managers

Membership in Account Operators, Domain Admins, or Enterprise Admins, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477).

To set logon hours using the Windows interface

To open Active Directory Users and Computers, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Active Directory Users and Computers.

In the console tree, click Users.


Active Directory Users and Computers/domain node/Users

Right-click the user account, and then click Properties.

On the Account tab, click Logon Hours, and then set the permitted or denied logon hours for the user.

Additional considerations

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Account Operators group, Domain Admins group, or Enterprise Admins group in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.

Another way to open Active Directory Users and Computers is to click Start, click Run, and then type dsa.msc.

To modify the logon hours for multiple users, press and hold down CTRL, and then click each user. Right-click the selected users, and then click Properties. On the Account tab, click Logon Hours, and then set the permitted or denied logon hours for the user.

Delegate permissions is the background solution, for IT users.

But there is not an interesting solution to use with marketing managers. Too many clicks...

I need a solution that does this management simplicity, with access via a browser.

Forefront Identity Manager offers it? An example of a similar software is the AdManagerPlus.
