Exchange systems object container

I just now realized that my Exchange systems object container is inside of another OU that I created.   Obviously this container has been moved here, either intentional or otherwise, but how do I move it back to the root of AD.   Can I just drag and drop it?   What, if any, problems can occur by having this container inside another created OU?    I am running Windows 2003 SP2 and Exchange 2007 SP1 - 64-bit software on 64-bit hardware.

Exchange systems object ???

Could you please name the object better, and of course its present location.

Is that MESO  or MESG ??

Thanks.

I ran the Exchange Security Analyzer on my domain and it returned this error:

Exchange Domain Container problem:

Active Directory domain 'XXXXX' appears to be prepared for Exchange but the 'Microsoft Exchange System Objects' container has either been moved or renamed. Containers found: CN=Microsoft Exchange System Objects,OU=NoDomainUI,DC=cbinet,DC=ad.

After checking my Active Directory, sure enough, the 'Microsoft Exchange System Objects' container is inside the NoDomainUI OU that was created by a group policy.

Can I safely move the MESO container back to the root of my AD domain?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Well, to be honest if your that scared (and which i feel you should be since your an administrator) take a simple system state backup before moving the MESO container - move the container to its default state.

If you find things messing up - perform the restore and life returns to sanity.

Hi Guys,

We got the same problem it seems that that Microosft Exchange System Oject has been moved from the Root to OU in AD 2003.

If we simply move it back using Active Directory User & Computers are we going to expected and other issue before it replicated?

Regards
