WSS v2 permissions questions - removing current group from "Manage"

  Asked By: Colin    Date: May 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1170

If i knew how to phrase this, I would probably find it in the archive,
my apologies for not successfully searching...

I need to create a User group that can control (add, delete) users in
groups other than itself. In other words, a member of this
group "foo" can add readers and contributors but can't add additional
members to the "foo" group. This will create a pseudo-admin group
that can do all sorts of activity within a collection without being
able to propagate the rights to others to do all sorts of damage. Has
anyone solved this? Heard of it?

One way to do it would be using the Active directory.

Get the ad admin to create  a Foo group  with users  id's without add  rights to the current  group.

Create other groups foo1 , foo2 with add members access to foo.

in sharepoint you can give access to these groups.

There might be other ways to it . This is just one of the approaches.

AD would be a way to go about it
but we are trying to keep things as automated as possible around
existing AD membership. In other words, I don't think the keepers
of AD will be happy to have us creating groups or auto-creating
groups. Any other ides?
