Goal: Setup Mailbox Mgr (Exchange 2003) to manage size of mailboxes using custom search/ldap query for members of a group where the group is in a nested OU

Issue: My ldap query below only returns users if the group is in a NON-nested OU -

(objectCategory=user)(memberOf=CN=GROUP,OU=OU,DC=DOMAIN,DC=com)

How can i alter my ldap query so it will return members of a security group in a nested OU so i dont have to change my AD layout - Below is how I have the layout

domain
   OU
       OU
          Group

The DN or your group should be something like  CN=group,OU=nestedOU1,OU=nestedOU2,DC=domain,DC=com.  I'll test later but it should pick it up
 
Thanks

that worked - it appears the sub OU goes 1st and the parent OU is 2nd - you got me on the right track -
