hello,

     i've tried with the delegation wizard and specific ACLs on the OU, with no luck.  I need to give a security group permissions to manage all aspects of user accounts in an OU, but take away the ability to create new users in that OU - that should reside with our help desk.  i can't figure out a way to do it.  anyone know how?

Can't test right now but if you right click the OU then go to the security tab and then advanced, if you select that group and give them "Deny" rights for "create user objects"   does that work.

Thanks

Following mkline71, you can def. do that thru the Delegation wizard in ADUC on the OU you want to restrict. It just takes a little poking around as there are potentially lots of settings, but a Deny Create should be easy to obtain in the Wizard.

i've tried deny create objects when applying the special permissions of OU objects, i've tried denying create child objects for user objects, etc - i can't seem to find a way to deny creation without losing all ability of that group to manage any other attributes.  can't seem to find a way.

Have you tried getting more granular and just deny "create user objects"  not just objects,  (see screenshot)

screenshot ACL
Thanks

ok.  apologies.  i failed to include the user in that security group :-)

if you use the delegation wizard to create, mng etc for the account, and then goto the security tab for the OU - leave the full control ACL for the group alone - and edit the create/delete object entry to deny as shown above in mkline71 entry, that will allow full access but disable creation/deletion of user objects.

thanks everyone.
