Our domain Helpdesk group has right such as add users, computers and reset password to AD objects in our domain.

There are certain AD objects (domain security groups) that we would like to restrict the above right only to a few members within the Helpdesk group.

Is it possible?

the best thing is to create a seperate OU for those groups and ensure you delegate permissions separately to that OU. You may have to remove delegation from top level objects to ensure Helpdesk only have rights as needed.

Agree with Steve. You would have to create another OU and apply different permissions to ensure no modification of any  accounts can take place. We have this inplace where service and domain admin accounts sit in one OU which only our team have access to which excludes the helpdesk.

Thanks both.

When I remove delegation, do I just go to the OU's properties>security and remove the Helpdesk group in the "Advance" list, and that's?

Thanks.
