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?

Thanks.

Want to promote your upcoming event?

Are you going to an event? Are you going to be exhibiting at a tradeshow? Talking at a conference? Using a promotional banner in your email signature ensures that your organization’s most important contacts stay in the know and can potentially spread the word about the event.

From the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in, click Advanced Features on the View menu so that the Security tab is exposed when you click Properties.
2.     Right-click the Computers container, and then click Properties.
3.     On the Security tab, click Advanced.
4.     On the Permissions tab, click Authenticated Users, and then click View/Edit.
NOTE: If the Authenticated Users group is not listed, click Add and add it to the list of permission entries.
5.     Make sure the This object and all child objects option is displayed in the Apply onto box.
6.     From the Permissions box, click to select the Allow check box next to the Create Computer Objects and Delete Computer Objects ACEs, and then click OK.
