Change the AD container used by RWW

As I understand it, RWW queries the AD Computers container for the list of machines that are available for connection.

How do I get it to query a different container (specifically mybusiness.local/mybusiness group/mybusiness computers)

Also for servers please

Many thanks

See this article for the answer.  SBS is meant to be configured via the wizards and management pieces.  It is not advised to make any manual changes to AD.

Hi TechnicallyMaybe,

Is this applicable to 2003? I could be mistaken but I believe the SBS console is a 2008 update?

I have another open question (http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/SBS_Small_Business_Server/Q_26408867.html) which highlights the fact that wizards have not been used on this server as they should have been. I am attempting to find workarounds for those issues.

Kindest regards

PS It is 17:30 in the UK, I won't be able to respond until tomorrow morning now so please don't think I am being rude and ignoring any replies.

2003 is a little different but it is still the same concept.  There is still a management piece in 2003 that allows you to create users, computers, etc.

Thank you for the suggestion - I assume there is no RWW configuration section where you can ask it to only query computers in a 'RWW Computer' Container for example?

I will leave the question open for a few days and if no other suggestions are offered I will award you the points.

Thank you for your help in this (and my other) question.
