    I think you have to edit the schema. I wanted to show the notes information (found under telephone tab) in AD, but did a bit of research and found that you have to edit the schema. I thought, buggar that.

    Alternatively why not create sub OUs and move your computer objects into the relevant OU?

    Could you not just pop it in the description? I know its a work arround but its a lot easier than messing with the schema!!

    Me too.

    I've also use the description to put a class to a teacher or assistant when I set them up. It's a lot quicker for me to pick out the many Nursery assistants or the Science teacher if I need to.

    Thats what I do, each room has its own OU, it means you can change computers round easily and apply different policies to different rooms.
