I have a few questions regarding OU filtering...

1. If we have 2 domain controllers, do I need to put them both in the active directory paths?
2. I have a OU that has computers that is actually inside another OU (Corporate OU > Computers OU), how would I set this path up?

Never mind, I figured out my first point (I don't put the actual name of the DC"s, I put the actual domain in)

My second point, I just want to make sure I do this right...

Here is my AD structure where my computers are with a red arrow. The only OU's I want to scan are with red arrows.



Would I need to make 5 separate OU Filtering paths? Could you check the below for my accuracy?

ou=Computers,dc=alcco,dc=com
ou=Corporate,Computers,dc=alcco,dc=com
ou=House Computers,dc=alcco,dc=com
ou=House Kiosks,dc=alcco,dc=com
ou=West,dc=alcco,dc=com

Thanks for any help

cn = container and ou = organization unit

Thanks for the help! Can't wait for 4.0 final.

First two should be:

cn=Computers,dc=alcco,dc=com
ou=Corporate,OU=Computers,dc=alcco,dc=com

I'm not sure what you mean by this.

2. I have a OU that has computers that is actually inside another OU (Corporate OU > Computers OU), how would I set this path up?

If you want only the lowest level, then add this "computers OU"
If you want the top level and everything below then add "corporate OU"
