Move OU with GPO

Hello Experts:

If I rename and move an OU in Active Directory, will the GPO applied to the OU follow it?

Thank you

You cannot move OUs.
Renaming is allowed and linked GPOs remain linked and apply.

Scratch that :-)
As I found out, you can move OUs using ADSI edit. And yes, GPOs remain attached.
