OU Questions

I have a questions, I have set up an OU in Active Directory and I was
wondering how do I either copy this OU (with all the same permissions)
and add a strong password permission to this OU?

Thanks

Hello Albert,

You can not copy an OU like a folder in windows explorer. You have to create
a new one and with GPMC you can link an existing GPO to the OU. I think you
mean with permissions the GPO?

you cannot copy OUs.

to automate this you can use some LDAP write capable tool like ADMOD
(joeware.net) to create the OU and then use DSACLS to configure the
permissions on the OU.
scripting is the key word here

In addition to not being able to copy it other than using Joe's tools, if
your "strong password permission" reference is referring to a password
policy, keep in mind a password policy ONLY applies and works at the domain
level and not at an OU level.
