Domain Accounts

Does anyone have a good website to define the different user accounts with active directory and their permission levels?

Also I want to add a new user and give him local administrative rights to all desktops within the domain but no admin rights to the domain itself currently.  What type of user would I need to configure?

Yes the users in the workstation admins group mentioned above would be just regular AD users. As long as the group is set to be Local Administrators on the computers (can be achieved via group policy) then thats all you need. No special AD permission required/

I usually create a global group in AD called Workstation Admins.  The Workstation Admins group is a member of the Administrators group on each workstation.  You can leverage group policy's restricted group feature or preferences Local User and group to make this happen automatically.  I would recommend using the Preference option.

So would the users within the group 'Workstation Admins' be just regular users?
