Hi,

I am in the middle of designing a new Global Active Directory structure for my company. I am using Visio to design the Organisational  Untit topology. Is there any way that I can use the Viso diagram and software or something, to them create the OU Structure directly from the Visio diagram. I know that you can use Microsoft Active Directory topology diagrammer, to create a visio diagram from an existing AD structure but is there a way to do the reverse?

Thanks

Not that I know of, it would be an interesting tool (to search your diagrams and automatically create an AD)
Just not sure how the logistics would happen (i.e. how the tool would create new DCs, sties, etc automatically)
Thanks

I had not thought about creating DCs and sties, but that would be great too!! I was thinking about just creating the OU structure.

Give the diagram to a cheap/temp network/AD engineer and get them to create it for you.. ..probably work out cheaper than a bit of software :/
