Active Directory Printers OU

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

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.
