distinguishedName OU


Recommended Posts

Is there any known way to join a computer to a particular Computer OU. I am trying to make it easier for our Help Desk to move computers. We have an issue with the default Computers OU having a lot of unmoved machines. So we have to clean it up every few weeks. After going into AD and pulling all know Computer OU that we use. I found out we have to do a major clean up but that still leaves over 50 OU we actually us

It's in the Answer File on the Network Identification page (Step 13 in the below link).


It uses the Distinguished Name found on the Attribute Editor tab in you AD listing. Open it up to the editor, copy the entire line (without the computer name) and paste into the OU field.

Hope this helps!
