Getting rid of SBS for good

We have migrated our (relatively plain vanilla) setup from SBS2011 to a new "full" AD, ie two standalone 2016 servers (Exchange, SQL and file servers) to which we have moved all the AD roles.
Overall everything seems to work as expected.
However we still have the legacy "myBusiness" structure in our AD (I don't really mind) and, much to my surprise, I have recently joined a new 2019 (test) server to my domain and by default, it ended up in SBSComputers.
  • What setting did I miss (ie. I still have something that refers to the SBS setup) ?
  • Is it safe to move my regular users from SBSUsers to Domain/Users ?

Hi there,

You can change the default OU that the computers are added into by following the below article, it's for 2012 but should work with 2016 as well:

Yes it's safe to move the users from one OU to another.  Just make sure that any relevant GPO's that you have setup are linked to the other OU.
