move AD objects to specified OU automatically through AD

Can anyone tell me a way that I can move computer object and user object to specified OUs from AD default containers, even if it is computers OU or users OU, through group policy? Thanks

I dont think Group Policy can do that, it will only force settings on the clients operating system and not on its AD objects or AD itself. Incase you are in a domain with server 2003 domain functional level, did you check at the 2 command line tools "redircmp" and "redirusr". They have actually redirect newly created users and machines to OUs you specify.

Thanks for the replies. Could you please tell me how to automate this process everytime there is a new user or cmputer to be created by using these 2 command line tools? We are using Windows 2003 domain functional level. And aso I have separated OUs for admin users and admins computers and regular users and their computers?

You can try to redirect the users and computers containers in Active Directory domains. In a default installation of an Active Directory domain, user accounts, computer accounts, and groups are put in CN=objectclass containers instead of being put in a more desirable organizational unit class container.

As others have written, you cant use GPO as an option, but you can try that using CMD tools or through the GUI. Or else, you can either script it or use NETDOM at the clients/servers to put the computer account in the correct OU.
