Hello,

We have departmental technicians that need to be able to pre-stage and  join machines in particular OUs but not be able to create users. At the moment we just make them members account operators, but this gives them access to create both users and machines, and in any OU. Maybe if we could create separate groups that are similar to the Account Operators, but can only create/join machines to designated OUs? Or by using delegated rights, but really not sure what boxes to tick on that one.

Cheers!

You would need to delegate.
The idea here being:
1) Create the OU computers will be added to
2) Create a new security group with the required permissions
3) Add those users to that security group
4) Ensure you have only applies the required access to that OU / Container

Here is a guide:

Thanks for this, it looks like it is more or less what we need. Would this allow the members of that group to pre-stage computer accounts in that OU?

Yes once you grant the group permissions they will be able to perform any and all actions you grant the SG on that OU.
