    Hi all,
    I need to create a User Account for Technical / Desktop Support so that the said user can login to any hots in the domain and can do the followings:
    1. Can Install / Uninstall Software & Drivers
    2. Can configure the TCP/IP

    But can not do the followings:
    1. Can not Change Administrator Password
    2. Can not reset Domain Users Password

    I have tried adding different groups but its not working.
    Please help me out, the strength of my setup is:
    1 DC, 1 ADC, 1 ISA, 1 DB, 1 Backup Server (all are running on Win Server 2003 Enterprise) and 87 Windows XP Hosts

    Please help me out, waiting for your replies.
    Kind Regards,

    Hi Ksid,

    This can be achieve by following.

    To install and uninstall software. Just create a regular domain user and make it a member of restricted group. Under Restricted group you define that this user would be local admin of workstation

    To change TCP / IP settings
    make that user member of Network Configuration Operator.

    and my friend you are done

    PS: may require some troubleshooting sorry couldn't test as i have no access to lab
    Thanks & Regards
