For the life of me I cannot figure this out...  Lets say I want to add a user in the OU CorpRoot>Sales>Admin.  Perhaps I am just unfamiliar with the usage of DNs (has been a while), but I can't seem to get this to work.  Normally, if I wanted to add a user just to CorpRoot it would be:

dsadd user "CN=newbie,ou=CorpRoot,dc=fiction,dc=com"

But what if I want to add a user or other object to an  OU deeper than CorpRoot?

it's the same as for the dc parts: read from right to left:

dsadd user "CN=newbie,ou=Voyager,ou=StarTrek,ou=CorpRoot,dc=fiction,dc=com"

Cheers

Actually, if you want it to be in an OU, then it should be OU=newbie,.................
If you create a container, then you can't assign GPO's, etc.
