Windows 2003 AD Organizational Units - Why or Why Not?
Posted on 2005-04-27
I'm a bit new to Active Directory. I know it's a database, I know it treats everything in a domain (users, computers, printers, etc) as an object in its Database. That's about all I know.
My question is this...
I'm starting a new Domain and I'm looking for advise as far as OUs go. My company only has about 30 employees and roughly 40 PCs (Win2k/XP)
- Should I create user accounts in the pre-existing USERS OU, or create a new one and logically divide stuff like:
|____ Users (OU)
- Does it really matter? What are the benefits of dividing accounts and computers into OUs?
Thanks you so much!
