Limit Administrator's access of some users

Good Morning,

I have set up Office 365 to one company in which there are two IT administrators. The managing director of said company has requested to limit the access of one administrator to 6 users (4 managers and 2 other titles).

How could I do it? I have a look with Exclusive Scopes but I do not see how to add users to that scope based on their email address and not a common filter.

Thanks in advance for your help!

You can do it via Exclusive scopes in Exchange, to create a new one based on email address or UPN simply use something like this:

New-ManagementScope -Name blabla -RecipientRestrictionFilter {((UserPrincipalName -eq '') -and (UserPrincipalName -eq ''))} -Exclusive

Open in new window

BUT, this will only apply to Exchange-related operations. If you want to limit other parts of the service, including admin operations in the O365 Admin center, there's no real solution. The best you can get is the administrative units feature, but that's veeeeery limited at this point:

There are some third party products that provide "admin portal replacement" type of features, but those cost $$$.
