    Hi Ric, do you have a link for this please.
    Is it a small file to download ?.

    Re: Active Directory,DNS,DHCP,on W2Kadv. Server. Help settin

    Hello.
    I'm getting there .

    Re installed again, set up AD, DNS,DHCP.

    Thanks Ajbriton for putting it down how to set the ou's up (did not set these up before oop's ) .
    I have done this, now I have to put all the workstations names in the "managed\computers" ou .
    eg..........managed\computers,lib1, lib2,office1,class1a, etc.
    but not any routers (member servers) etc.

    Then similar for the staff . eg "managed\users\staff,ann a, pat b, etc.

    Then similar for the pupils . eg "managed\users\pupils,ben a, sam b,mary xyz etc.

    Re
    You should also create OUs for other objects (eg Groups, Service Accounts, Admin Accounts).

    Do these come off the main tree or from the 'managed' ou ?.

    I can also see that I can set the GP for each ou.
    for ..say the workstations I would set things that would affect how the users can use there workstations and what they can have access to ?

    On this site have I seen some of these GP's I can download to use or is every school different ?
    I have seen that there are some 'template ' GP in w2k server.
    Michael.

    The GPMC can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en an is 5.6MB (apparantly). You must install it on a XP SP2 machine though (and you may also need .NET on there too but these are all pretty standard things).

    You can set up your OUs wherever you feel like and give them whatever names you like too. For instance my free looks like:

    Code:
    My School
    -> Administrators (basically me and my computer - different GPOs applied)
    -> Citrix (for my Citrix servers)
    -> Computers
         |-> Admin
         |-> Laptops
         |-> Workstations
               |-> Classrooms
                     |-> Classroom 1
                     |-> Classroom 2
                     |-> ...
               |-> Library
               |-> Offices
               |-> Staff Room
    -> Users
         |-> Admin Staff
         |-> Pupils
               |-> Year 
               |-> ...
         |-> Sixth Form
               |-> Year 
               |-> ...
         |-> Staff
    Obviously, you would lay it out in whatever way is logical for you. Lots of OUs makes for easier application of GPOs and you can always link one GPO to several OUs.

    You'll probably find that your OU structure will change as your network evolves and you better understand what it needs to do and how you need to manage it. For what it's worth, here's my complete standard structure.

    \Managed
    \Computers
    \ICT Suite
    \Classrooms
    \Library
    \School Laptops (these seldom leave the school)
    \Staff Laptops (these go home with staff and connect to Internet)
    \Groups
    \Servers
    \Service Accounts
    \Users
    \Managers
    \Staff
    \Students
