Hi, we have a third party company which looks after our 2nd level support for our server, and naturally they have to have admin rights to perform this task. However, is it possible to set it up that they can't reset passwords for users?

You can create a local admin account or grant their domain account local admin priveleges on the box in question.  They'd be able to reset passwords for local users on that box but not domain users.

You can group them all in one OU and then delegate permission to only reset passwords on their own OU.

Open ADUC  right click on OU you created and click on delegate control
Then follow the delegation control wizard to delegate the required permission (in this case password reset)
Simply click the button only the following object and check the users in that OU, then once in the permissions screen check the required option change password, reset password etc.

The wizard should be pretty intuitive.
