Additional Permissions needed for a Service Account to Reset and Change AD passwords and Unlock AD Accounts.

June 28, 2018 at 11:20 am Leave a comment

In some scenarios we had to delegate the  permission for a Junior Administrator to do some AD related tasks ,for example change/reset the AD user password , Unlock user account , etc. In this case most of the articles I have googled and referred pointing only to enable the
“Reset user passwords and force password change at next logon “. But what I realized is that this alone will not grant your the required permission.

Thus additionally you need to add a custom level delegation as provided below;

  • Create a custom task to delegate and click Next.
  • Select  Only the following objects in the folder from the Delegate control of option.
  • Select the User objects option as the object to which to delegate.
    Click Next to proceed.(Ensure Property-specific is selected.)
  • Scroll down to select the Read lockout Time and Write lockout Time.
  • Review the changes and click next to complete the wizard.

Please note that I have not listed any detailed steps on how to create the delegation rules as there are plenty of articles available on the Internet  that provides a very descriptive guidelines along with  the screenshots.
