VM´s created in non-default OU in Active Directory?

Jump to solution

Hi all,

Is it possible to have virtual machines that are created with VMware View to place themeself in a non default OU in Active Directory?

I have found this PDF that tells me how to delete VM´s from AD.

But it does not say how to create them in a non default OU.

During pool creation, you can define in which OU your linked clones will be placed.

There is a tab available under guest customization that will allow you to place VM's in a specific OU container.  It's only available if you utilize the quick prep option and if using sysprep you would need to find another way to do it.    It can also be set after the pool has been created by simply editing the pool.

Sorry, I missed telling you I am not using linked clones.

Do anyone know how to do it when not using linked clones?
