AD Delegation

I want to Delegate Permissions to a Security Group in AD. Now I only want these permissions to be on certain OU's. Is there a way to quickly do this or automate it?

Right now I am manually doing each OU and it is just taking awhile.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you considered using powershell?  (Of course, like almost everything that involves scripting, it'll take a while and some effort to get the automation set up, but should be faster after that.)

To use the given below script:

$ou = "AD:\OU=Users,DC=contoso,DC=com"

$group = Get-ADGroup MyGroup
$sid = new-object System.Security.Principal.SecurityIdentifier $group.SID

$acl = get-acl $ou

$ace = new-object System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectoryAccessRule $sid,"GenericAll, ","Allow"

$acl.AddAccessRule($ace) set-acl -aclobject $acl $ou
