I need someone to be able to have read-only permissions to our AD structure. What permissions can I give them to have the minimum permissions to do this? If I create a account what group should I add them to?

You can use Delegation wizard with in ADUC.
  • Open ADUC (Active Directory Users and Computers)
  • Right the Domain if you want this user to have read rights to the entire domain or select the OU that you wan this user to have rights to.
  • Select Delegation Control and the Wizard will start.
  • Search for the user you want to delegate Read rights to and hit next
  • Select Read All User Information.
that should be it.
If you want to help with additional users in the future create a group and call it something like DomainReadOnlyGroup and do the same as what is illustrated above and add this user to that newly created group.

Any domain user has read permissions out of the box - what would you like to do that a standard user cannot do already? What would you like to prevent that a standard user can so?
