This is the NTDS path to the OU {MY BRANCH} that I have admin rights over:
     "ntds://Ad.Company.Com/Unit/MY BRANCH/Computers/Computer Name"

What is the correct LDAP path?  I've tried the below without success
     dc=Ad,dc=Company,dc=COM,ou=Unit,ou=My Branch,ou=Computers,cn=Computer Name

That should be
cn=Computer Name,ou=Computers,ou=My Branch,ou=Unit,dc=ad,dc=company,dc=com
If in doubt, use dsquery:
dsquery computer domainroot -name "computer name"

All builtin containers are CN's in AD, all OU's created by users are OU's.
