Trying to move a user object from one OU to another OU.  I get an access denied alert when trying.  This is not an issue with other user objects.  How do i check the security settings of the user object, (User account)?  This has not been an issue in the past with other users.  This particular user has been with the company for 20+ years so,  the object is very old.

Im a domain admin,  checked the permissions of both OU's and Domain Admins are allowed full access.

In Active Directory users and computer right-click the user click the object tab and check to see if there is a check mark in PREVENT FROM ACCIDENTAL DELETION.  If there is Uncheck it, move the user then check it back.  

**Your view in Active Directory users and computers should have advanced features turned on and show objects as containers**

"PREVENT FROM ACCIDENTAL DELETION"  is not checked.  sorry I looked at that earlier and should have added it to the original message.

Right-click that user, select the security tab and make sure "Domain Admins" is in there.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.
