Active Directory ?

By al.carrizales ·
I have a win2k server and need to make changes to active directory, I want to put desktops under another container called desktops in the computers container and all the laptops under another container call laptops in the computers container, I can move them fine but will there be a problem doing this with the administrative rights or will the rights move along with the computers? Also wanted to do department folders under the users container and move users according to department, but what about access rights? will they stay the same after they are moved? Thank you in advance.

OU's have nothing to do with rights/permissions. So no, rights will not move when you move users or computers from one OU into another.

The thing to worry about would be GPO's that have been applied. Depending on where in your AD tree GPO's have been linked you might run into some issues if you makes some drastic changes to the AD structure.
