Hi EE

Does anyone know if there is a way to grant an account the ability to disable other AD accounts but not be able to enable accounts ?

I am in a 2003 domain functional level

You need to delegate a lot in order to do what you want

I found this that might guide you

I am not sure if this can be achieved as with Delegate control you can grant permissions to modify the user settings which include the overall permission. There is no such specific permission set like disable or enable users in the Delegate control option.

Note: it would be possible if you moved those currently disabled accounts to an OU below the OU you are granting disable+enable permissions on if you disabled inheritance of permissions. We don't need to use the delegation of control wizard but ->properties ->security will do it.

Or what is your mission's objective? Grant rights to disable but keep the currently disabled ones from being enabled, no?
