Launch the Delegation and Configuration console, while logged on as an Assistant Admin (AA), with the DRA Administration role.  This ActiveView is created to manage different types of resources on one or more computers across multiple domains. The ActiveView can be created to manage all resources on computers or specific resources only. The types of resource that can be managed are as follows:

  • Connected users
  • Devices
  • Event logs
  • Open files
  • Printers
  • Print Jobs
  • Services
  • Shares

ActiveView Creation 

  1. Expand Delegation Management.

  2. Highlight ActiveViews and click New ActiveView.

  3. Click Next.

  4. Click Add and select Objects that match a rule... 

    Note:  Under the 'Resources' field you will select which Computer Resources you want the Assistant Admin to be able to manage.  Granting All Resources gives the AA powers over all resource types listed above.  Selecting an individual resource in the list will grant the AA powers over just that selected resource type.

  11. Click Finish.

  12. Click Next and Add.

  13. Select Users...
