Q

Roaming the system with domain rights but no edit rights

Is there a way to get up an account that can roam the system with Domain Admin rights but NOT be allowed to change anything? We have recently outsourced and we wish to be able to check on what is happening on the system without being accused of 'meddling' with the system.
Create a new account, then assign or delegate to it only the read rights over all the AD containers and objects. This is done through Active Directory Users and Computers.
