More than 100 DomainOUs? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have over 100 OUs in which to deploy Machines.  I am using MDT 2012 and the customsettings.ini has DomainOUs001 - DomainOUs124.  However, only DomainOUs001 - Domains100 show up in the list of OUs in the Deployment Wizard.

    Is this a limit in the Deployment Wizard Scripts?  How can I get all 124 OUs in the list?

  • I did see some script or a reference long time back relating to the same - the reading loop for that property might only do 100.

    Having 100 OU list in a huge deployment project, might not really make sense. You can get around this in a couple of ways.

    • Either use MDT DB and pre-populate computer name and corresponding OU.
    • Map the OU based on the Network (Default Gateway Property). Like is the Computer is in New York, it will join the NY OU. etc etc
    • Use AD Powershell and create the computer accounts before hand and put them in the right OU's.
