Redirecting Users to an Alternative OU
You want to redirect all new users from the default OU (i.e., cn=Users) into the destination OU that you specify.
Using a graphical user interface
Using the command-line interface
To redirect the default OU that new users will be created into, use the following syntax:
Most modern methods for creating user accounts, including the ADUC MMC snapin, AdFind, and DSAdd, allow you to specify which OU a new user should be created in. However, some utilities such as net user or the WinNT ADSI provider still rely on a legacy API that will create a user only in its default location until it is manually moved to another OU by an administrator. The default location in Windows Server 2003 is the cn=Users container; this can create issues applying Group Policy to new user objects since the Users container cannot have a GPO linked to it. To ensure that all newly created users receive the necessary Group Policy settings as soon as they are created, use the redirusr.exe utility to redirect all new users that are not otherwise placed into a designated OU into the destination OU that you specify. You only need to run this utility once per domain, and the destination OU needs to exist before you run the utility.
