Give IT Technicians rights to domain clients

I want to give my IT Technician access to browse to client computers on my network, move/copy files, install drivers and add computers to the domain but not have access to my servers.

Any suggestions on how to set them up?

"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.

Add him as administrator to your domain computers
Delegate Admin Privileges

Please have a look at this:

If he needs limited access to domain resources then you will have to tailor a group policy and put him in this special group (e.g. helpdesk group) with limited access.  You will have to customize his account specifically to what access you want him to have.

If he doesn't need access to the domain resources such as shared files, etc. then just add him as a local administrator to the workstation.  Note I said LOCAL administrator NOT domain.

All you need to do is setup a GPO for Restricted Groups and apply this to all of the OU's where you want them to have local admin permisisons on your workstations. The link below outlines how to accomplish this.

Just do not apply this GPO to your OU's where you server lives.
