Active directory user with admin rights for software installtion and support

Dear Experts,

I need to deal with IT departments all the time with admin rights for our software installation.

I need to get them to create an OU with the machine and user for our company that has admin rights. The trick is to have the admin rights just for the software installation and not be a security threat to the rest of the domain.

I spoke to the software vendor and they recommend to install the software as a domain admin.

Obviously that creates problems with the clients IT department.

Can you send me a link with the active directory instructions for what I want to do. I need the actual important steps for this please.

I am aiming at having the sales team add this to our documentation.

Regards,

M

why  not create the OU and only provide local admin rights if the software is being installed on PCs?

You can push local admin rights down to the OU doesn't need to be admin rights if all you are doing is installing software on the pcs.

As per the vendor it is ideal to install the software with domain admin right because of some data base accounts that are created for the software. The software has to have ms sql express installed as well. Something like that I was told.
