Hello everyone,

I guess the title of my question tells you everything.  Basically I want, for a specific OU only, to delegate the creation of a new sub-OU  to a certain user  .  

What is the name of the permission I need to modify  ?  There are sooooooo  many and I am not sure which one is !   BTW , I have Windows 2003 AD

Thanks you all !

Cheers

Right click required OU and select delegate control
Select user \ group to whom you wanted to delegate permissions
Then select custom task
In custom task, select "only the following object in the folder" and select Organization unit from list and from bottom select create selected objects and delete selected objects
Then select full control permissions on next page

Same way you can add more permissions if wanted to
