Chaps,

Is there a work around to allow more than 10 pc's to be added by a delegated
user in AD?

We have a satellite office with a local IT support technician, but he has
hit his 10 pc joining limit, is there a workaround?

TIA

The User Right "Add workstation to the domain" by default (configured
in the Default Domain Controllers GPO) grants EVERY AUTHENTICATED USER
(even non-admin users) in the domain to add/join workstations to the
domain. It is best to
remove "authenticated users" from that user right or set the quota to
0

For true delegation it is better to delegate the right to a group and
defined that on an OU (not a container) to create computer accounts
and to join computers as mentioned below.

Using the delegation of control wizard you can delegate the creation
of
computer accounts to the domain. This does not mean the same
user/group can
also JOIN the computer to the domain. In the DELEGWIZ.INF file
(%WINDIR%INF)
look at template 6.....
By default the "AppliesToClasses" is set to "domainDNS" (case
sensitive and
without quotes) With this you can only delegate computer account
creation at
domain level. Change that to "domainDNS,organizationalUnit,container"
(case
sensitive and without quotes) and yuo will be able to delegate at OU
level

If you delegate the creation of computer accounts to a group (e.g.
GROUP-CREATE-COMPOBJ), the member of that group that creates the
computer
becomes the owner of the computer account and automatically receives
the right
to join a computer with that name to the domain. The other members of
that
group will not be able to join the computer to the domain. In this
case only
the user that created the computer account will be able to join the
computer.
Lets say you have another group called GROUP-JOIN-COMP that is allowed
to join
(not create computer accounts) to the domain, the user who creates the
computer
account has the possibility to designate which user or group gets the
rights to
join the computer to the domain with the option ("The following group
or user
can join this computer to a domain" and this is by default Domain
Admins group)
The group mentioned in that option will be able to join the computer
to the
domain. In my opinion that is a lot of work just to create a computer
computer
account and join it.

It is however possible to pre-configure the option called "The
following group
or user can join this computer to a domain and this is by default
Domain Admins
group"

Add to the DELEGWIZ.INF file (%WINDIR%INF) a NEW template you can use
to
delegate the task of JOINING COMPUTERS TO THE DOMAIN (not the creation
of
computer accounts) The minimum rights are mentioned below!

REPLACE THE X with a NUMBER!

;----------------------------------------------------------
[templateX]
AppliesToClasses = domainDNS,organizationalUnit,container

Description = "Join a computer to the domain in an OU (computer
account
pre-created)"

ObjectTypes = computer

[template6.computer]
;Right to join computers to domain
CONTROLRIGHT= "Reset Password","Validated write to DNS host
name","Validated
write to service principal name", "Account Restrictions"
;----------------------------------------------------------

This way you can delegate the creation of computer accounts to group1
and the
joining of the computers to group2.

It is also however possible you have a group of people who create
computers
accounts and also join them. To able so everyone in that group can
create a
computer accounts and join the computers to the domain independent who
created
the computer accounts replace TEMPLATE 6 with what is mentioned below
or
perform the delegate twice with the additional task created above! If
you want
to join a computer to the domain in a specific OU and the computer
account has
not been pre-created you cannot use the GUI at the computer. For this
you must
use the tool NETDOM so you can specify the OU the computer account
must reside
in! The latter only is only possible when you at least have the right
to create
a computer object in the designated OU. Joining will also be possible
because
you automatically become the owner of the computer account!

;----------------------------------------------------------
[template6]
AppliesToClasses = domainDNS,organizationalUnit,container

Description = "Add and/or join a computer to the domain in an OU
(computer)"

ObjectTypes = SCOPE, computer

[template6.SCOPE]
;Right to create computer objects
computer=CC

[template6.computer]
;Right to join computers to domain
CONTROLRIGHT= "Reset Password","Validated write to DNS host
name","Validated
write to service principal name", "Account Restrictions"
;----------------------------------------------------------
