    By default new Computer is added to domain and placed to Computer container.
    I would like newly added Computers to be placed to different container,
    based on department or something similar.
    Can these be done automatically?

    That is ok. Good information.
    What if I have tree departments? I name new computer that I going to add to
    domain. I name it by department which is going to belong.
    All links are showing, to do that manually. Can it be done, that computer is
    added to computer container, or define OU, and there is pick up automatically
    based on description or something else to be put to there departments OU,
    where its belong
