Lync 2013 CommonAreaPhones - Delegating Permissions

Last Modified: 2015-04-05
I am trying to grant limited permissions to some junior administrators in Lync 2013.  I tasked them with creating some new common area phones for conference rooms.  The policies for the phones have already been setup and I thought I delegated the proper active directory permissions to the OU where the lync contacts are created.  They were able to create the common area phones but they cannot grant-csclientpolicy successfully.  They receive the following error.  I can run it with a user that is a domain admin but honestly I am not going to grant all of our IT staff domain admin rights to manage Lync phones.  I haven't been able to find documentation explaining what permissions are required in active directory.  Any suggestions would be helpful.lyncerror.png
