Special Permissions

You may find a special case in your
environment where the standard permission settings do not
allow you to set the desired level of security or access
required to
a given object. Special permissions can be set in cases such
as this.

Whenever possible, you should avoid
assigning special permissions for specific attributes of
objects, as the administration of multiple Active
Directory objects in this manner becomes cumbersome.

If you find that there is an absolute
business need for setting special permissions, this can be done by first opening the Active
Directory Users and Computers MMC and then finding the object you
want to administer. Once you have done this, you would need to right click the
object to edit its properties. You would go to the security
tab and select the Advanced button.

You can then select the required
permission entry and click on the View/Edit button to
further edit the permission.

Well, that wraps up this section
of Learn Active Directory Design and Administration in 15
Minutes a Week, which covered the Windows 2000 Active
Directory Delegation of Authority – Permission Settings and
Inheritance. I hope

I want to write good, solid technical

yet to figure out why you can tell someone that there

that a bench has wet paint and they have to touch it.”
