AD account ?

Can I( give a user permissions to login to the domain controller to reset passwords and or create new accounts without giving them domain admin access. We have a user that sort of fell into the IT role but the boss doesn't want that user to have access to the secure folders on the file server yet he does with the administrator account. Can we give his account permissions to still be able to do basic admin things but not access the private folders of others?

Add them to Account Operators, and install the Remote Server Admin Tools on their workstation. They dont need to login to your domain controller.

You can install the management tools on the user's PC and make them an account operator.

Then they can do password resets from their own PC.

Would this allow that user to create Email accounts in Exchange 2010 as well for the accounts?
