Hi all,


We are currently in a situation where we have multiple locations with RSA's and every location has three different OU's for different systems in the Active Directory.

With the domain join postinstall script we can put computers in the correct OU, but for every different OU there is a different postinstall script, and thus a different deployment.


This has worked fine up to the point we want to create a new system image and deployment, as this is forcing us to make over thirty different deployments, one with each a different domain/OU join postinstall script.


We want to know if there is a way to get a dropdown list of all the OU's to select during the deployment and then have the computer populate that OU. Powershell or VBS?


Thanks in advance.

You can pre-create the machines in AD in the OU where you want them.  Join them to the domain with this script.  The trick is the user doing the joining needs to modify the existing AD machine objects to update them.  Give no other abilities in AD for better security.  We do this for our 2000+ academic machines.  We re-image every year and this has always worked for here. Our Acad images are 100% hands off after starting them.
