comment Can't create share on remote server without admin rights on local server
Thanks this article gave me the idea to try adding them into the Power Users group which seems to work and is a reasonable compromise rather than giving them full admin rights.

comment Can't create share on remote server without admin rights on local server
Thanks, I gave it a try but still the same problem. I couldn't find an option to turn off admin rights, I put the console mode into User mode - limited access, didn't seem to make any difference unfortunately. Starting to think I'm going to have to go down the script route.

Hi I tried this, saved the mmc and copied across to one of the users but although they could launch it OK it still would not let them add a share, same error about requiring elevation.

Yeah using a command line tool or script was going to be my "plan b" but it will involve retraining the staff, updating their work instructions etc. I was hoping there would be a way to do it while still using the MMC GUI. Thanks anyway.
