Once you have your domain and group policies set up, it can become frustrating to constantly have to remember to move a new computer into the correct OU.
Luckily in Windows 2003 Server and above, you can set a default OU:
- <code>redircmp ou=ComputersOU,dc=mydomain,dc=com</code>
Remember to replace the path with your own domain’s OU path. Also, your domain has to be running in at least Windows Server 2003 native mode – otherwise you will receive an error:
Error, unable to modify the wellKnownObjects attribute. Verify that the domain functional level of the domain is at least Windows Server 2003:
Unwilling To Perform
Redirection was NOT successful.
To change this:
- On the server go to Administrative Tools > Active Directory Domains and Trusts.
- Right-click on your domain name, and click on Raise Domain Functional Level.
- Set the domain level to at least 2003
Now you should be ready to go!
