Hi, has anyone seen where some techs could not see a specific OU but everyone else can see it? Is it possible these OU's are hidden from certain ppl somehow like permissions set? If so where can I go to fix it?

    I've never seen that one if by techs you mean they have elevated rights.  I've seen read access be denied but usually for users.

    In ADUC make sure advanced features are on and then right click the OU and go to the security tab, see who has permissions there.

    Yeah, I also didn't see anything similar. If it's on 2008/2008R/Win7 you can try to delete dsa configuration under
    and delete there dsa file configuration

    If it's XP/2003 I would suggest reinstalling Administrative Tools to check if there were no problem with any DLL file(s) ?
