Forcing creation of computer objects into specific OU

There is a way to force the creation of all computer objects to be created into a specific OU.

I've seen it done at a previous customers, but I'm not sure what steps were done to do this.

Thanks

To create a computer account in specific OU. You need to create computer account in that OU first otherwise that computer account will be created in default computer OU

That is true, however when you add a computer into AD, you can specify an OU for it to go into, otherwise it will just go into the computer objects container.

But there is a way of ensuring that all computer accounts get created into a specified OU. We've done this for a high security customer, but I can't remember what we did, and I can't seem to find anything when googling.

Thanks KCTS. Exactly what I was after.

I knew we'd done it before.
