Hi all,

Im trying to delegate rights for a user to be able to process simple tasks in Active Directory 2012 including reset passwords, unlock accounts, change passwords. I have gone through delegate access wizard but im not sure the best way to edit this after i have delegated rights.

What is the best way to do this?

I prefer to create groups named something like: Delegated - Account Management or Delegated - Helpdesk Role. With these groups, I assign several permissions to them and document the permissions in the group comments. When I need to edit additional permissions, I can open the security tab on the OU and head to advance - then I can specifically add/remove permissions for different classes of objects.

Agree with Joseph Moody
Create a group and apply the permission on the group.
In future if admin leaves you can assign the same permission by adding the new admin to the group and remove by just removing from the group.

Here is an explanation.

Im not sure if you understand. I know how to create a group and add member to it. I can do this. However, Im trying to work which access i have to delegate to just be able to delegate rights to change passwords and unlock accounts. For example, If i use the delegation wizard I can delegate right to change and reset password, but the unlock account is then greyed out.  So which option do i use to allow the rights to unlock accounts?
