Adding PC to specific OU in MDT 2010

Hi All,

I hope you can all help me....I am having some issues joining my PC image to the domain and then to a specific OU in MDT 2010.  Here is the section from my Rules file.

SkipDomainMembership=YES
JoinDomain=Domain.ca
DomainAdmin=jdomain
DomainAdminDomain=Domain.ca
DomainAdminPassword=password
MachineObjectOU=OU=Windows 7,OU=Company Computers, DC=Domain,DC=ca

If I take out the MachineObjectOU the computer joins to the domain just fine, but puts the PC in the default computer OU.  I need it to go to a specific OU.  If I leave the line in there the computer doesn't join to the domain.

Any help on this would be amazing as it is the last thing I need to do to finish off this image.

Thanks

Does the account adding the machine to the domain have permission to create/delete computer accounts in that OU?

Hmmmm I don't know how would I check that?  I know it has permissions to add it to the domain.

Right click on the OU and select properties (you may want to make sure advanced features (under view) is enabled. You will do this in Active Directory Users and Computers.

No problem. Sometimes, it just takes an outside eye.
