How to change the default "Computer" container

Discussion in 'Active Directory' started by Clayton Sutton, Aug 17, 2005.

  1. We have a Windows 2003 domain. I read some place how to change the default
    location that a computer is placed when you add it the the domain. Can
    someone point me in the right direction?

    Hi everybody:
    Can this thing be done in a Windows 2000 Native domain?

  4. Nope, it's a change that's only allowed in Windows 2003 Native domain.

    Thanks Todd,

    That's what I was looking for and it worked just fine!

  6. Gux,

    About the only way that I know to do this in a WIN2000 environment is to use
    an unattended installation where you specify the location of the computer
    account object in the 'answer file'. This is a rather nice way to do
    things......However, not everyone likes to do unattended installations.

    I also like RIS, but not sure that you can accomplish this via RIS.
