Good morning I have been successful with deploying delegation through AD on an OU. In fact I have been successful with applying delegation options to an OU through a security group.

Here is the problem I am having. I need to delegate for an additional 30 other OU's. How can I go through the process of selecting what I would like to delegate as far as permissions and then be able to apply this to other people on different sub ou levels. We are using server 2008 R2 sp1.

No easy way to forklift ACLs from one OU to another, would be a nice feature.  In theory you could script it out to check an OU and then apply the same permissions to another OU...I personally don't have that script written.

Delegation can flow to child OUs but it sounds like you want to copy the ACLs do other OUs too.

Thanks

Your based bet would be to do this manually as you can take your time and ensure that you are delegating the permissions properly with no error.

You can in fact do this from powershell, but I would highly recommend that you test the script several times on different Test OU structures or even a totally isolated AD environment in a lab.

Below is a link to a great example to accomplish this in Powershell with entire break down. If you are not comfortable with powershell i would recommend doing this manually through the GUI.
