  • Joining to specific OU

    Hello,

    I've successfully added member servers directly into a specific OU in our W2K AD using netdom with the /OU switch. I can't figure how to add clusters to an OU using cluscfg. Also, is there a way to add users directly into their OU? Net User ... doesn't seem to support this or am I missing something obvious?

    Thanks,
    Swats

    You can use dsadd command:

    Also, I dont think cluscfg support add cluster to new OU or specified OU.

      yuval,

      Thanks but dsadd is a W2K3 command. This is a W2K domain.

      Additional information:

      The admin who will be attempting to do a join will be running with admin privileges in his/her OU only. S/he will not have admin privileges in the root domain or lower in the tree than the OU. This is why it's important that they be able to join these devices/users directly to the OU and not to the root domain.

      The DC may be located around the world, so it's not reasonable to coordinate with the DC's admin either...

      Thanks,

          dsadd is a client software and can run against W2K domain.
          Run the command from a member XP workstation or W2K3 server and see for yourself.
