    Installing software and basic trouble shooting Account (Junior Techie)

    We have a junior techie and want to start to let them loose on the network to do basic troubleshooting and software installs but don't want him them to have logon rights to servers etc or be part of domain admins group. Any suggestions?

    when you setup user accounts you can do a delegation and specify what you want to have access to.

    Its delegate control on the OU then add users in and edit the preferences and set what you want.

    Why not just set the account to be a low level account with install priveleges. Would be better so they dont have full access to the server.

    I would give him a standard user account with local admin rights on all computers.

    Can this be done through GPO or are you talking about giving them the local admin password for the PC?

    The delegation method seems the most complete answer! Good idea
