i am looking at changing what rights users require on my companys domain, as all the IT staff have domain admin rights, which most of then dont need, is there a way making new groups and giving the certain rights like being able to install software and printer ect.

we are running a windows 2003 domain with AD

Hi BigC,

It sounds like you need to create a "Power Users" Group for them. All I know is that WinXP Pro has this category of user which is like a restricted Admin, but I don't know for certain if it is available for a windows 2003 domain with AD (perhaps).

If its just install software and printers then create any old group add the IT staff to this group and add the group to the workstations admin group.

In 2003 just create a new global group. Add the users to the global group. tyhen push this global group to the admin group on the individual workstations. You can also add their user IDs to a GPO for adding computers to the domain as well if they are in charge of rebuilds.
