Example: Users and groups in different OUs, under different parents — Microsoft Active Directory

In this example, there are two separate OUs, User Accounts and Group Accounts in the domain example.com.

Specifying the OU takes the form:


In the example, there are four different accounts:

OU=Admin Users,OU=User Accounts,DC=example.DC=com
OU=Finance Users,OU=User Accounts,DC=example.DC=com
OU=Admin,OU=Group Accounts,DC=example.DC=com
OU=Others,OU=Group Accounts,DC=example.DC=com

For this example, to authenticate users and groups, you would make these entries in the Add Directory screen:

Directory type Active Directory
Base DN DC=example,DC=com
