I have created an OU in AD but it is not showing up (or resolving contents) when attempting to use it.
Let's say the OU name is "HostedUsers". I create a couple of security groups within that OU. I then create another OU as a child of "HostedUsers" - let's call it "BobsUsers". Within BobsUsers I create a few security groups. My goal is to make a security group within BobsUsers a member of a security group in HostedUsers. I enter the name of the security group in the Members Of "add" screen and it doesn't resolve. Doing an advanced find from that location shows no contents (none of BobsUsers' or HostedUsers groups appear).
As a test I just created the same thing on another AD domain and everything worked fine.
There are no related errors in the event log that point me in the right direction.
Attackers love to prey on accounts that have privileges.
