Hi Sohail,

Based off the brief description of what you are trying to accomplish,
you can do this via Delegation.  Basically create a group and stuff all
of your helpdesk personal into that group then delegate the OU that has
all of your users and/or machine accounts to the group that you created
for your helpdesk.  For a more detailed answer take look at the
following link:

Hi Guys,

        I want to create an administrator account on the domain for my
helpdesk persons.  I basically want them to only add machines to the
domain, and add user accounts for new employees with the option to
change their passwords.  Basically, I want do not want to give them the
administrators password.. and control what be done potentially and
accidentally...  Can some one assist and let me know how I can do that?
Or provide me the procedures.  Any guidance would be great!
