Hi All,

I recently started a new company and I am trying to tidy up their Active Directory.


They have an OU called printers with nothing in it.

Is this a system folder?

If not, am I ok to delete it?


Thanks
D

Printers is not a system folder,  The actual only "OU" that is in a default AD installation of AD is the domain controllers OU.  The rest of the default folders are containers (without the book icon/just plain looking folders)

In ADUC if you select view > Advanced you will see the system folder and subfolder

Thanks

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
