How to set up custom AD Taskpad view for certain OU's
I want to set up a custom AD task pad view so that i can give ICT dept staff a custom MMC so they can just reset passwords for kids.
I have a OU which contains separate OU's with all the year groups which all contain the relevant kids. I want the staff just to have a custom MMC so they only see the top level Student OU and all the other OU's inside. I would liek to be able to let them change password and nothing else.
I have tried this but it does not seem to work how i want it. I only get permissions to set the reset password if i pick on a particular year group OU, if i try it at the top level OU i don't get the reset password option.

I set up the exact same thing for our teachers to reset pupils passwords (mostly to stop them bothering me to do it)
Works perfectly, but yep - the hard bit is setting the rights and permissions correctly. I think your query seems to relate mostly to your AD setup though - how is it structured in relation to the groups you mention?

Edit: If noone can help, i'll do you a little walky-through for how i did it. See if you can get a quick answer first though.
