Unix Attribute Tab in AD fails unless domain admin

I am having trouble assigning non domain admin accounts permission to alter attributes in the Unix tab for any user account.

Generic error is:
Unable to update the maximum user ID number for the selected NIS Domain

then after clicking OK you get:
Unable to modify the object property values.
Check your credentials
There could be a network problem
Active Directory Domain Services could be down
Contact your system administrator

The articles on the web say add full control to ypserv30.

ypserv30 - the group has full control of the folder and all child objects.

We are running 2003 DFL/FFL and I do have MS Identity Management for Unix installed on one of the 2008r2 domain controllers.
-----------------------

Does the group also need full control of defaultmigrationcontainer30? or is there something else to check..

thanks in advance...

After making some changes we no longer receive this error:
"Unable to update the maximum user ID number for the selected NIS Domain"

But we still receive the other generic error below and are unable to make changes without using a domain admin account.
Unable to modify the object property values.
Check your credentials
There could be a network problem
Active Directory Domain Services could be down
Contact your system administrator

We added explicit permissions for a security group with full control to ypserv30 (permissions include r/w for all of the following):
gecos
gidNumber
loginShell
msSFU30Name
msSFU30NisDomain
uid
uidNumber
unixHomeDirectory
unixUserPassword

-------------------------------------

we also made sure that in the schema under group it does have posixGroup as an auxiliary class under relationship.

Any other suggestions?
