I'm using MDT 2010. When trying to specify an OU via the MachineObjectOU variable either from a Set Task Sequence Variable step or from the Rules/customsettings.ini, I am having trouble with it working if the path includes an OU which contains a space in the name.
I can specify the same exact string from the GUI of the Deployment Wizard and it will work as expected and place the new computer account in the correct OU.
I have tried quoting it in these two ways:
I've searched all over and have found some similar mentions of problems, but those ended up being solved by permissions to the OUs. In my case, I've tested with a Domain Admin account which most certainly has permissions. I can specify other OUs that do not contain spaces through the same exact methods and they work without a problem.
Has anyone else run into this, or does anyone know of a workaround other than renaming the OUs?

Are you deploying Windows XP/2003 or something later? The following should work:

If using Windows 7, do you have a copy of the unattend.xml from c:\windows\panther that shows what was inserted by MDT into the OU field? (It's a little harder to get that with XP unless you specified /debug:true, in which case the sysprep_after.inf file would have it.)
Do you have a copy of the netsetup.log file from c:\windows\debug that shows the attempt to join the machine to the specified OU?

I had the same problem as Braden mentioned. I used ADSIEdit tool, browsed all the way up to the OU where I want to place the machine, then open the properties of OU, copy the DN path and pasted in the custom.ini file. Boom! it worked fine..
You shouldn't use quote when you give DN path for the ou in MDT.
