Try this;

You can use the onlevel paramerter to only use the specified OU

I have tried this one, but this also hits the Sub OU below it, for some reason.  What adjustments do I need to make to this script so it will only shutdown machines in the one OU?  Many Thanks!

Try using this code;

with the shutdown subroutine instead of the objFile.Write

Actually walked away for a while and looked at that script again.  Did some good; the stupid answer was staring me right in the face the whole time.  Just changed one setting from "subtree" to "onelevel" and that worked!  Thanks again!!
