Active Directory - Moving a Newly Joined Machine to Your Organizational Unit

When a machine has first joined the Campus Active Directory domain, it is placed in a temporary Organizational Unit (OU). Active Directory administrators must move the newly joined machine to their site's OU.

The temporary location for newly-joined machines are:
ou=computers,ou=orgUnits,dc=ad,dc=wisc,dc=edu (Production)
ou=computers,ou=orgUnits,dc=qa,dc=ad,dc=wisc,dc=edu (QA)
ou=computers,ou=orgUnits,dc=ite,dc=ad,dc=wisc,dc=edu (ITE)

The Active Directory Users and Computers management tool should be used to move the machine. See Active Directory - Remote Administration Tools
