Active Directory Users Security Not Save

By Working IT ·
I have 3 DC. 2 running 2003 Server and 1 running 2000 Server. I am setup with Administrator permission. I login to one of the Win XP PC with the admin pack installed. I went to Active Directory Users and Computers and changed individual user's security setting. Everything work the way it supposed to. But after an hour or 2, the changes I made were gone. I tried that on a PC, the 2003 DC, and the 2000 DC. It is the same. After an hour or 2, the changes will disappeared. How can I save my changes?

Does this happen with all changes you make? For example, does it happen with something as simple as chnging the description for a regular domain user?

There are somesettings that AD will prevent from happening. Say for example you try to give domain users permissions to change the group membership of the Domain Admin group. For a while it will look like that was successful, but after a while all changes will have been undone.
For more info on this subject do a search on "AdminSDHolder" on the MS site or google

Based on your recommended search on "AdminSDHolder", I found a KB from microsoft (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907434/). And from there, I found my answer. Thanks!

I read the article from microsoft about the "Send As" right (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907434/). It says my changes will be overwritten within an hour. I really need to assign the "Send As" right to someone but I don't want to use the "Send On behalf". Is there any alternative?
