Hi,

I want to give access to a manager to our active directory .... to only one group of users... so that he can unlock the accounts when they get locked out.

is there any plugin or software i can use for this purpose.

the manager is at our remote site location. Our environment is Windows server 2008 and Exchange Server 2010.

Thanks

Here is link that describes "Delegating Control" of objects in AD.

Link:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294952

The article says to right-click on the domain, but you can also delegate down at the OU level.  So if all you users are under a specific OU, I would do this from there.  This way the person or group can only unlock accounts the are children of the location.  The delegate control wizard will walk you thru assigning the permission(s) you want to give out.

No plugin or software needed, you can do this via ADSI Edit. See here for the steps: http://support2.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;279723

yep Neil is right, I used AD Helpdesk for a long time. You do need a VPN connection or have wireless access to the lan when on site.
