Hey,

Having an issue creating a OU on MS Server 2008 R2 Standard, the button at the top is grayed out, also the option isn't available in the New menu when you look under the action Tab.

Any help appreciated.

You are likely trying to create an OU under the default "Users"
container, right? "Users" is a container with limited functionality (not
an OU, no chance to link GPOs to it).
 
What you can do, and probably should do is create your own user
structure under the domain root. You're free to create OUs there and
order them according to your needs.

make sure you are running Active Directory Users and Computers console from the elevated prompt, use the built-in Administrator account, or turn off UAC on the computer you are working on.
