  • Open server object as a container and move printers to another OU

    Hey guys and gals,
    I think I can remeber opening the server object in AD as a container and move printers from that object to another Organizational Unit. I've been talking to our friend, , but he didn't know. Or I asked the wrong questions, it always boils down to asking the "right questions" or you might be sitting there with a note saying 42... Oh, I'm rambling now.

    Anyhow, can anyone else remember doing something similar?

    Any advice I give is to the best of my knowledge, there is no guarantee what so ever that it will actually work in your particular scenario. I will not accept any responsibility for unexpected consequences, after all - you are taking advice from a complete stranger over the internet. =)

      Solved. It's so easy I'm quite embarrassed.


      1. Start Active Directory for Users and Computers.
      2. Click on View in the menu and click on Users, Groups and Computers as containers.

      Now you can expand the Objects.
