Delegating permissions on OU

Hi,

I have assigned reset permissions to a group using the delegate wizard and created a custom tool using the mmc snap in for the users to reset passwords on the OU to which they have permissions.  The AD is at 2003 level and I know the tool works as I can access the OU using the tool as a domain admin.

However, when people in that group try to access the OU which I have delegated control to using the same tool, they cannot access it?

Hi Walter

This is exactly what I have done.  Created a reset password tool from a new taskpad view and delegated control of the OU to a new security group which this person is a member of.  However, when they try to open the tool they get an error that the MMC cannot build the snap-in.  When I try it using my credentials it works fine so it must be a permission error.

It could be a problem with the MMC itself or the .Net framework.

Try to run MMC with "Run as administrator" option and also check the Application event log for errors.
