    Hi guys

    Hope this is the right section - ive been mucking around with server 2008 to try and replicate the setup we have at work. From what I understand its typical for the enterprise/sever admins (not me!) to have domain admin rights - and in order to let the lower helpdesk people administer create accounts/groups etc (me!) they use the delegate control function in AD to do this? (Please correct me if im wrong!)

    Now i setup a few OU's to muck around with and wanted to delegate control to a normal user and it worked nicely - however im not sure where in AD to see my deligation and amend it if necessary?

    I assume 2008 is similar to 2003 AD wise (although i hate the changes in the explorer views :twisted: )

    Thanks for any help!

    If is like win2k3 you can switch the view in advanced mode.
    You should be able to see the OU's security tab .
