Delegation is the act of giving power, responsibility or authority to someone (or something). When we talk about delegation in the context of administering our Windows Server 2003 computers and networks, we can be talking about either the Delegation of administrative authority (also called delegation of control); or the Delegation of authentication (allowing a service to use a user or computer account for access to resources). It is this second type of delegation that we will discuss in this article. Windows Server 2003 has provided some enhancements to this feature that will make your administrative life a little easier.
