  • which permission to create a user account

    I want to create a "service account" which is a "normal" user but should also be given permissions to create other user accounts in the AD.
    Can this be done using "SELF"? If so, what permissions do I need to give it.

    Use the Delegation of Control Wizard

      I know I can use the delegation of control but I would like to be able to give that account the actual permissions. If that is not achievable I will have to use delegation of ctrl.

        To assign the permissions manually...

        Right click the OU or location you want to assign permissions
        Click Security
        Click Add
        Type in the user or group and click OK
        Click Advanced
        Scroll down the permissions entry list until you see the user or gorup you just added
        Highlight it and click Edit
        Uncheck all permissions
        Drop down the Applies Onto list and select User Objects
        In the permissions window check the Allow box alongside Create All Child Objects
        Click OK

        That should give you what you need

          Have a look at the minimum permissions needed as listed in: http://blog.joeware.net/2007/01/09/758/

              Well that won't help the TS huh?
              Why not posting an URL to the technet site where the question has been answered?

                Why not do the search and post the KB? j/k

                Here's a quick google search

                  The OP request was about the minimum permissions required for creating a user account.
                  Your KB refers to Delegating the Unlock Account Right

                      Read it better mate. I asked Vedprakash why he didn't gave a direct url for the OP.
                      I'm not the OP. An answer like: search the technet site won't help the OP directly.
