I need to lockdown a website to only users that are members in an OU can access the site, can anyone explain how this can be accomplished. The webserver is a 2008 r2 website with IIS 7?

Hi,

OU is not a security boundary, it's just a container, so you cannot use this to restric access to your IIS.

What I would advise is to create a group in AD and permission the group again this site.

To do this please follow the link below
