A wizard that you can run using the Active Directory Users and Computers administrative tool for networks in Microsoft Windows 2000. The Delegation of Control Wizard facilitates delegating control of different portions of Active Directory to other administrators and users.
The wizard simplifies the process by allowing only the administrator to assign permissions at the level of organizational units (OUs).
Assigning permissions to OUs rather than to particular directory objects ultimately simplifies the Active Directory administrator’s work.
To start the wizard, open the Active Directory Users and Computers tool, select the OU you want to delegate control for, and choose Delegate Control from the Action menu.
Specify the users or groups to whom you want to delegate control, the subset of object types in the OU for which this should take place, and the kinds of permissions you want to assign.
