  • OU membership

    Hi, I am trying to understand how OU membership works. I read that an object, say a user can only be a member of one OU at a time i.e. it can't exist in more than one OU at a time.

    I am fine with this, but what happens when the user is a member of more than one security group and each of these security groups are in different OUs? Does this lead to conflicts in OU administrative delegation for that user? There is obviously a good reason why you wouldn't want your user in more than OU at a time, but I am not sure exactly why.

    Thanks for any help in understanding this.

    have a good day

    Think of OUs as containers that hold objects and groups as containers that hold SHORTCUTS to objects.

    An object of any sort can be in one OU only but can belong to many groups (one original, many shortcuts...)

    Hope this helps
