I need to give my application an OU in AD and have it list the OU contained in it, and then the CN contained in each of those.  I can get the properties I need once I get to the last group, but for some reason I can't list a group of OU's contained in another OU.  How can I setup an AD search with vb.net to give it an OU and have it list all the OU contained inside of it?
