I create a new OU in ADUC but do not see the new OU in GPMC.

If anyone has any idea please advise.

Our DC is a WIN2K8 box.

Thanks.

When i create new OU's in AD I close and re-open GPMC and the OU normally appears.

If it does not happen to be a refresh problem, then please tell us: do you run more than one DC? If so, it could be a replication issue.

Did you leave GPMC open when you created the OU? If so, did you try refreshing your view by clicking on the icon in the toolbar?
GPMC-Refresh.pngAs McKnife mentioned above, if you are using the Group Policy Management Console on a machine other than the one which you used to create the OU then you may need to wait for AD replication to occur.
