We just Recently Picked up a a new customer and the IT Company that set them up did not setup the users and computers the way they were suppose to.

Its a SBS2011 server and they created New OU's. they never used the Small business OU that was Provided in active directory.

They never moved the Users and computers to the Windows SBS console which makes it harder for us to setup remote web. As of now none of the users can use remote web because none of the users are in the console.

What will be the easiest way to get the users to the SBS OU and import them into the console?

It's simple drag and drop from within the AD console. Select the users using SHIFT or CTRL and drag them to the new location or right click - MOVE.

Once there you should be able to import them from the SBS Console and it should add them to the proper SBS Security Groups.

Is the easiest way to add the users to the console done this way?


Easiest way is to use the "Change user role for user accounts" button in that Window.  

Select "Standard User".
Select "Add user permissions or settings"
Click Next
Tick "Display all user accounts in the Active Directory"
Select all the accounts you want to add to the SBS Console, and move them to the right-hand column using the Add>> button.
Click "Change user role".
Done.

And how will I import them into the Console?
