Summary

This article describes how to use the Exchange 2000 Administration Delegation Wizard to configure permissions in Active Directory.

More information

The Exchange 2000 Administration Delegation Wizard provides a friendly interface which enables you to configure permissions to the Exchange Server objects in Active Directory. If you are an organization administrator, you can use the wizard to get more information about the exact changes that the Exchange 2000 Administration Delegation Wizard makes to the Active Directory.

To use Exchange 2000 Administration Delegation Wizard:
  1. On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Right-click the organization or administrative group for which you want to delegate administrative permissions, and then click Delegate control.
  3. When the Exchange Administration Delegation Wizard starts, click Next.
  4. Click Users or Groups, and then click Add to grant a new user or group administrative permissions.
  5. In the Delegate Control dialog box, click Browse, and then browse to a group or user from the list that is displayed.

    When you enter the appropriate location in the Look in box, you can view the list of users and groups from Active Directory, or you can view only a list for a particular domain. You can also type the name of the user or group in the Name box; however, you must type one name at a time.
  6. After you have entered a user or group, in the Delegate Control dialog box, in the Role section, click one of the following types of administrative permissions that you want to give to the group or user:
    • Exchange Full Administrator
    • Exchange Administrator
    • Exchange View Only Administrator
