So at my company I'm a domain admin... now, there's a setting for allowing certain users (or OU's) a limited number of times that they are allowed to join new machines on to the domain, without making them a domain admin. One user had 10 but used them up and i'm looking to reset that because they use multiple VM's etc... how do I do that?
