    I'm sure that there's a simple answer for this, but I'm jut missing it...

    When I do a "Find" in Active Directory and find a user, it's not telling me
    the OU that person is in. It brings them up, but tells me nothing of where
    they are in the Domain. What tool is there that not only finds the user, but
    also tells me what OU they're in? This needs to be known to apply GPOs to
    the proper OU.

    Again, I'm sure there's an easy answer, but I'm just missing it at the moment.

    In ADU&C click the View drop down menu, and choose "advanced features".

    Now, when you open an object's properties, you'll see an Object tab among
    others. This tab will show you the object's location in the directory using
    it's canonical name.
