Hi all, i wonder if you could help, as per the title "I wish to allow a user rights to join computers to domains but not give access to all admin" We have a local domain and i would like to be able to allow a trusted user access to join new computers to this domain but don't really want to give them full admin rights or indeed access to admin areas etc.
Is this possible?
many thanks
