We have a 2008r2 active directory domain. I need to set up a user so she can use ADUC (active directory users and computers) to modify cosmetic changes in user accounts, such as job title, address and display name. I have tried making her an acccount operator but that does not give her permission to change anything. Is there a group other then domain admin, that I can use?

You can use the delegation control wizard > custom task > user objects and then give rights to spefic properties.

I'm at work so can't transfer screenshots right now but I can later if you would like...just let me know.

Thanks
