Computers Container Deleted

Before I was involved with Active Directory someone seem to have deleted the "Computers Container"  I am not sure how they managed to do this but I can not find this anywhere.  What I want to be able to do is recreate this, is this possible?

I thought it was not possible to delete and I read somewhere that this is true and you can rename the container but not delete it. Any ideas?

The Computers container is merly a place holder for newly created objects that are added to the domain. This container is protected by default. If you have modified the default locaiton for newly created computer account to point to another OU this computers container is now "un-protected", which means it could be deleted.

You can re-create the computers container and then use the redircmp command to point back to this container for newly created computer accounts.

Syntax for redircmp below...
redircmp cn=computers,dc=domain,dc=com
