I have customer requested to have new security group (a group created by himself with new IT staff) granted with a certain rights to administer the servers and network related tasks.

he will create new group and their role as below:-

1-HelpDesk: Add/Remove User ID and join Domain, network configuration, re-set psw

2-Service Admin Operator: run, start, stop services of all domain servers, install programs, re-set psw, network
configuration, DHCP, DNS...server services

3-Group policy editting: registry editting

4-File Share Group: have right to access to all fileshare and folders

5-Service account group: to group all services accounts
Applications already have its own services account so customer will group it own themself, no change on the permissions
of these account and group


i believe i need to configure at GPO to allow those group with that rights. just wonder if there is any article that i can refer?


thanks

I would look at the built-in groups first. For example, Server Operators, Account Operators, Group Policy Creator Owners.

I use a new group for full control over NTFS.

I guess you can put all service accounts into a group just so you know what the service accounts are, but you can also just put all service accounts into their own OU.

Okay, i think i know what you want.

Instead of mentioning from group point of view, i will focus on features and what to do to enable end user to do so


 Add/Remove User ID and join Domain, re-set psw, Group policy editting
<-- this is AD delegation.
http://windowsitpro.com/active-directory/view-remove-ad-delegated-permissions


network configuration , run, start, stop services of all domain servers, install programs, registry editting
<--  will require local admin rights. you need to use GRoup policy preference to assign this group to all machine that relevant (i.e. if is it workstation, then apply to workstation. If it is domain server, apply to domain server.
http://www.grouppolicy.biz/2010/01/how-to-use-group-policy-preferences-to-secure-local-administrator-groups/


have right to access to all fileshare and folders
<-- apply this at the root of fileshare. Of course, users can break the inheritance
