Really easy question;

In AD, how can I grant a single user access to add/remove members a Global Security group? I have two groups that I want to allow him to edit.

Thanks

You'll need to allow them access to the group itself.  You can do it with a single user making them the "manager" of the group and checking the box that says managers can update the member list. (under the Managed By tab).

Additionally, you can explicitly give permissions to multiple users in the Security tab on the group object.  Add the user and give only the "Read Member Property" and "Write Member Property".  (Verbiage of the option may be slightly different depending on your domain level).

Hi,

Create a OU move that user to new OU and run the control delegation wizard. Select "Modify the Membership of Group" permission.
