Odd permission level for a user.

A site owner has contacted me with an odd permissions issue.

1. He is a member of a group called "XYZ Site Owners" which has Full control.
2. He has ability to add users to "XYZ Vistiors" and "XYZ Owners" but cannot add anone to "XYZ members".
3. When he clicks into the group it says he does not have permission to add users to this group.

Any ideas ?

By default, when you create a site the following groups are created:
site owners
site contributors
site visitors

when they are created, the group owner is set to "site owners"

if that is changed, for instance for the visitors, then the site owners cannot add users to that group.

The way to fix that is to have a site collection admin look at the permission and put it back to your XYZ owner group.

You can right click the OU and select delegate control and then set the permissions.

Make sure that user has the following permissions to the top level XYZ OU:

Create Child - User Objects
Create Child - Group Objects
Create-Child Organizational Unit permissions.
