Delegating control to a Global Security Group within an OU

I have a Security Group-Global that I am using as a Role.  This group is in the Roles OU.  I need to delegate control to add/remove users from that role but I only see how to delegate control to the entire OU, not just one Security Group.

Must I move my group to it's own OU to delegate control or is there a way to delegate control to just the security group?

It's kind of odd in that I want to delegate control of one group to members in another group, but that's what I need to do.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What you can do in this case is the following...
- Make sure that Advanced Features is enabled in Active Directory (View, Advanced Features)
- Go to the security group, right click, select properties
- Click on the Security Tab, click the Advance button
- Click the Add button, add your security group here,
- Give the Security Group Full Control

Once you have done this anyone in that group will be able to add/remove users from this Security Group specifically.
