    Creating a Power User

    Hi again.

    I am the administrator for our network.

    To help me with some of the tasks..... I created another administrator and showed him how to change passwords for pupils etc.

    I have been instructed by our Head that she does not want this other administrator to be an administrator but she still wants him to be able to changed passwords for thepupils

    Any ideas....

    Should I change him to a Power User ?

    Ta

    You would need to delegate him control to change passwords - see this article.
