SCCM + AD to create full OU / Collection Tree
Hi I suppose it’s a simple question but I'm sure it won’t have a simple answer so I will try and be as detailed as possible.
SCCM and all its tools have been newly integrated on my clients site , It has over 8000 users and 7500 Computer/Laptops.
We are about to rollout wins 7 to the business using the AD’s OU groups one at a time. These are broken down by Area – Site – user group etc
There’s a lot of Oganise / security groups etc as you can imagine.
What I would “like” to do, is somehow export the AD OU hierarchy and recreate that as a Collection Tree in SCCM . I can create the queries afterwards as I go through the collection. So in other works my Collection Tree is Identical ( As far as it can be) less of course users, which I would somehow like to filter out of the Collection creation process.
Is this possible?
If it’s not, I would have to do it manually and that could takes weeks L
see if these links help any, let us know
Hi SMAL.tmcc,thanks for the links, I have been to most of them but they dont solve the problem I have. I have already installed the AD connector and can run queries against it when setting up Collections, I was just hoping there was a tool or something so i could import the AD "Structure" rather than the objects and create the Collections Tree from it. I dont think its possible , but might be in some later incarnation of SCCM
