Hi Gray,

To set the minimum rights for an AD account to reset a password, do the following
Create a basic domain account without any additional privileges
Use Delegate control wizard within "User and computers", then
User Object
Reset Password
Write lockoutTime (if unlock is enabled)
Write shadowlastchange

That’s it !

What I want to do is create an “LTB-only” AD user which only has the permissions necessary to change and reset passwords.  I created the user in AD and ran the Delegation of control wizard to set this up. I thought that enabling “Reset user passwords” and “Read all user information” might work, but alas, no. I would up having to select “create, delete, and manage user accounts”. The good news is that its no longer using my or an admin’s credentials, but I think I don’t really need LTB to be able to create or delete or change group membership for users, which I think this setting permits.
