Join Timothy Pintello for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding organizational units and groups, part of Windows Server 2012: Install, Configure, and Administer Active Directory.
- The next topic of discussion are organizational units.…Organizational units are objects created to manage…inheritance in an active directory.…By default, only one OU, or organizational unit,…is called the Domain Controller OU.…All other OUs must be created separately.…Generally speaking, OUs are not considered…security principals because you cannot assign…access permissons based on OUs.…However, you can create things called groups,…which are special purpose OUs,…that do allow assigning permissions.…
One of the advantages of an OU is that they allow…for decentralized administration.…The way they allow for decentralized administration…is you can assign a specific user admin rights to an OU.…This allows the user to do administration type tasks…on the assigned OU without allowing them to have…administrative rights on the rest of the domain.…This minimizes the number of users with global…administration rights and it also limits the damge…to a single OU if a mistake is made.…
