How can I assign rights to the OU to the user have right to create sub OUs?  It seems like when I assign using delegate or security tab, it only gives permissions to the that top level OU.
Please help.

    Excuse me for being brash on my first comment and being mistaken.  Right click the domain and then select delegate control.  It will bring up a wizard for exactly what you're trying to do.

    Well, I don't want to delegate to the whole Domain.  Specific OU only.

    So you can right click on an OU and also run the delegation control wizard.  You can create a custom task then select "only the following objects in the folder" and go from there

    Do you want them to have any additional rights in the OU.

    Yes all the rights in the OU is fine.
