Greetings, I inherited a network that already has AD set up. OUs are set up with what I call subordinate OUs. In other words,
                                                           OU-1
                                                                OU-1a
I cannot get my scripts to find OU-1a. I tried this, strOU = "OU=OU-1/OU-1a ," and it did not find the OU. Is there a way to get my script to find OU-1a and make changes to user accounts?

Taking a stab:  Did you try "OU=ou-1a,ou=ou-1" ?

If you run from the command prompt dsquery /? eg: dsquery ou dc=mydom,dc=com and then look for the OU in question and reference this to your script and see what happens.

Razmus your solution was totally correct. I was a bit cautious so I followed JBond2010's dsquery first. Thanks to both of you I am scripting happily.
