Thanks Bob, But that will not solve my problem, it only controls the membership of the SO group ,let me explain my requirement: Our's is huge user base account where all user management is done thru user management group and these members are less privileged admins than SO, they can't reset the member accounts of server operators group due to Server operators Dacl is Protected by PDCE and i don't want to give the user management group a higher privileges than the present one. Secondly we are don't want to use any butilin groups, we wanted to fine tune the Roles for admin tasks and grant proper permission's & previlalges to these roles.

That is, if you need to control who's in that group, you can do it with a security group, then place permissions on the security group to control who is place in it. Not sure if that will solve your problem..

I'm need of a security group which has similar permissions and privileges granted to Built-in Server operator group in Windows 2003 AD. Basically I don't want to use the built-in group but rather create a new group and grant this group all permissions and privileges granted to built-in Server operators group can this is achievable thru GPO, if so can some one guide me plz if not what are reasons it can't be done. Highly appreciate any inputs on this topic, Many thanks in advance Srini _____ Want to be your own boss? Learn how on Yahoo! Small Business. --------------------------------- Yahoo!
