    Operational Units

    Seems we've not had a thread about this so far, and I could use some help if anyone knows the answer to my question.

    When we first started using FOG we used the same old images we had before, so I didn't worry about the FOG Client. We've been making some new images so I've started leaving out the domain stuff from sysprep and letting the FOG Client do it, which is much much better for the most part. The only thing I can't figure out is how to get it to join a specific OU... so at the moment I've gotta move the machine manually. I just can't figure out the syntax.

    We have an OU called "Vanilla Student Laptops" (vanilla because they're plain XP and don't have any RM bullturd on them) and then an OU within that OU for each room or trolley, in this case "Des9". I tried "Vanilla Student Laptops/Des9" and it didn't work. Before I faff about sticking quotes and slashes in different places does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    Cheers

    You need the full LDAP version of the OU

    FOG active directory

    Cool, thanks... I'll check it out on Monday.

    Looks like Syntax for specifying OU in AD is the helpful bit out of that thread.

    I personally use ADExplorer to get the full ldap path for OUs in AD. Great little tool and saves the hassle of trying to figure out the correct path

    May I suggest checking out the offical Fog documentation as well? It really is well documented when it comes to this kind of thing

    FOGUserGuide - FOGWiki
    Knowledge Base - FOGWiki

    Yeah, I did... couldn't find what I needed though. Normally I'd agree with you, FOG documentation is excellent.

    Anyway, I got what I needed from here
