Redirect new users and new computers to different OU in Active Directory

I’m sure everyone knows this but it’s often forgotten and not used.  I find it useful to redirect new users and new computers joined to the domain to go to an OU where you can create policies.  Never mind why Microsoft didn’t do this in the first place.

Here are the two commands to redirect users and computers respectively.

Redirect users to different container:  redirusr <DN path to alternate OU>

  1. Ex: redirusr “OU=Users,OU=My Office,DC=domain,dc=local”

Redirect computers to different OU:  redircmp container-dn container-dn

  1. Ex: redircmp “OU=Computers,OU=My Office,DC=domain,dc=local”
