Want to allow some users to create Exchange mailboxes

Request to allow two users to create mailboxes in Exchange 2010 and to perform password resets.  Was looking into RBAC, but that doesn't seem to do the trick.  Is there a way outside of using the EMC and ADUC or a third party solution?

Thanks!

RBAC is going to be involved, because that is how you will have to grant the permissions to allow them do to so. If you don't want to use the native tools then you are looking at coding something to do the underlying work for you (as everything is in PowerShell). This is effectively how hosting control panels work.

I haven't seen anything third party to do this outside of hosting control panels - for most clients they get something written using internal resources which runs a script in the background as part of a wider new user provisioning process.

Guess I will have to search for some scripts to modify.  Was hoping to do something with RBAC.

RBAC is just a tool to control the permissions, nothing more.
Once you have set the permissions, go in to ECP (https://host.example.com/ecp) and login as one of the users and see whether it shows you what you want them to see. If it does not then you will have to look at scripts.
