Active Directory: Delegate access

Hello experts,

I want to delegate access (for a group) to an attribute called userprincipalname, but this attribute does not show in delegate wizard in ADUC. How would I delegate/grant access.

Your assistance is appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you need to select custom delegation task, then select "user objects" and then grant them "read and write logon information" on user objects

I granted/delegated access to "write logon name" to a group. Is there a way to check if a particular group has the ability to write "userprincipalname".

Add required user to that group
Then on which OU you have made delegation, on any user account in that OU try to change userprincipalname

I have granted access to the OU. The user is saying he still cannot. He logged off and logged on waited for replication, I want to see if I can generate some report confirming that this group has access to modify this attribute.
force ad replication
then check effective permission of that ou where u assigned permissions
