I'm trying to use the dsadd group command. I have an OU called Security Groups. Inside this OU, I have an OU named Departments. I can get the dsadd group command to work creating the new group in the Security Groups OU, however I can not get it to work to create the new group in the Departments OU. How do you code the distinguished name of the group to place it in the second level OU?
