So my domain name is newbalance1.local and the main domain server is oog1 so how do I arrange these to make the network scanner happy that wants this field filled out.
I would like the anser to be something I can just past in the field

This used ldap query
I think you can use cn=Users,dc=newbalance1,dc=local  for users in the user container
if you use a OU then you should use OU=OtherUsers,dc=newbalance1,dc=local  for users in that OU

change OtherUSers for your OU container
if is an OU in another OU you have to name all the path

OU=Manager,OU=Accounting,OU=OtherUsers,dc=newbalance1,dc=local for a user in OU OtherUsers\Accounting\Manager

Would need to know a bit more about your AD structure to answer categorically, but something like:-

CN=Users,DC=newbalance1,DC=local

or

CN=Computers,DC=newbalance1,DC=local

The heirarchy of the statement reads from right to left, so any sub containers / OU's would be added to the left of the above.

The easiest way to build the statement is to open up Active Directory Users and Computers and drill down into newbalance.local (which is DC=newbalance1,DC-local)

Then add the subfolders to the left of the statement.

The next bit will either be CN=<container> or OU=<organisationalunit>

That may then also contain other things, again, these are added to the left of the statement that you are building up.

Hopefully that makes enough sense for you to use?  If not, please screengrab ADUC and show us the folder that you wish to include in the statement.

how do I get all the information you need

serchlopCommented:
Maybe a printscreen of the OU or you can write the full path for your users location

if newbalance users is on domain level this should be

OU=newbalance%20users,dc=newbalance1,dc=local  
or
OU="newbalance users",dc=newbalance1,dc=local  

I don't recommend spaces, but maybe you have all settup.

Can I specify multiple OU

You can drill down into specific OU's / CN's by adding them to the left of the statement.

You would need to check the documentation of the software you are using to see if it allows you to specify several different OU's.....
