Hi, I have a 2008 domain and need to delegate teh reset password authority to certain users BUT I need to delegate this control on a security group NOT an OU.

I know how to do this for OU's and have done it before but this time I really need to assing permissions on a security group. For x y and z reasons it is impossible for me to regroup all affected user accounts in 1 OU and I can't delegate to multiple OU's because that could affect other users.

Any Ideas ? I been through MS and other forums but only find info for delagating ton OU's

Thanks

You cannot do what you are trying to do

You can assign delegation to OU level and domain level

You cannot assign delegated rights on security group to specific user to reset password of security group members
