Thanks for you reply.

I am aware how to delegate authority and how to use the various security
policies ... in my own opinion, at least ;-)

Delegation and security plicies does not help me here, I am affraid. I need
to assign additional access rights to a built-in group (DHCP USers) already
granted to another built-in group (DHCP Administrators). My problem is that
I don't have a clue what those rights are for the DHCP service and where
they are assigned. I am pretty sure it is not delegation issue, though.

I have assigned my test users Full Control everywhere I can think of
(OU/NetServices/file system etc.), but unless I assign the to the
Administrators or DHCP Administrators group, they still get "Access is
Denied" for all the actions in the DHCP console.
