Hello, I want to give a user some access to update entries in Active Directory so they can add and remove addresses in an address book for the company.  Is there a way I can setup an ID so a user can use active directory from a workstation and limit them to what they can access?  I want them to have access to only one OU.

There are a few ways to do this, depending on how much access you want to give.  The easiest may be to right-click the OU in question and Delegate Access to a user or group.

The workstation the user would need to have RSAT (remote Server administrative Tools) installed.  You can then delegate control of an OU to the user

Also probably want to create them a custom MMC that open in the OU they will manage.

right click on the OU in active directory users and computers. Delegate control.

On the workstation install RSAT http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7887
