How to manage users in SBS2008 console that were created in AD U&C?

By mdfreeman ·
I have taken over an SBS 2008 server that was not set up correctly in the beginning. All of the user accounts were created in Active Directory Users & Computers instead of the SBS console, in addition, they were not created in the default container (My Business\Users\SBS Users); now my client wants to be able to use Remote Web Workplace for their users, but, I cannot assign users to computers because none of the users show up in the SBS console. I created a test account in AD U&C and moved it into the default container but, as I figured, it does not show up in the SBS Console. Is there any way to manage these user accounts through SBS Console without recreating them the correct way?

Change user roles...

Okay, I found it. You have to run the "Change user role for user accounts" wizard in the SBS Console, click the check box that states "Display all user accounts in the Active Directory". This will allow you to "add" user accounts in other containers to the SBS Console and manage them accordingly.
