    By default, AD computer accounts are created in the Computers OU, but you can change this. To change the default OU computer accounts are created in, use this command on any domain controller:

    redircmp Container-DN

    It’s a good idea to change the default OU because it alleviates the security risk that computers may not be locked down by group policy when they are added to the domain.

    Redircmp Example

    Here’s an example of how to use redircmp to redirect computer accounts in AD:

    redircmp ou=NewComputerOU,dc=DomainName,dc=DomainSuffix
