I work for a small organization that does not have a network/server admin. I am trying to figure out if someone is made an administrator of a local machine does that grant that person the ability to create shares and assign permissions to other domain users?


Also, if we want to make active directory accessible from a users desktop what permissions does that user need on the domain?

Yes, Local Admin will have permission to create shared and assign permissions to other domain users.


To give users AD permissions, you just need to right-click the OU and assign the permissions needed
