OU and User setup Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2012-09-20
Setup a new Server 2008 R2 box on a clean install and now getting ready to setup out users. So far under Active Directory Users and Computers I have created a new Organizational Unit called "NCAP". Under "NCAP" I created OU's called Computers, Security Groups, and Users.
I am now wondering if I should create new groups under the "Users" for each of our departments as we have five departments. And then add specific users under each group? Or can I simply create the groups, add the user accounts under "NCAP/Users" and then make them a member of the "Fiscal" group or the "SVS" Group etc?
My main reason behind this is I only need certain users to be part of "Fiscal" etc and have access to those shared folders / programs.
I may be making this harder then I need to but just trying to get the correct setup going off the bat as it is a fresh install. We only have around 25 users spread between the five departments.
