    I was just wondering if there is a best practice when moving user objects
    between OUs. I need to move approximately 6500 users from one OU to another.
    Thanks in Advance...

    You can move 1, 5, 10 or 6500 at once, it shouldn't matter.

    Note:AD only shows 2000 at each time, to see 6500 you need to change the
    filter options on the view menu.

    I hope that the information above helps you

    Good Luck

    I should think you'd want to skip the GUI and use dsquery / dsmove for that
    many objects.
