NNS ADix - How to...Create Organizational Unit Objects

This topic describes how to create organizational unit objects with NNS ADix.

The following table contains a list attributes which are mandatory when creating organizational unit objects:

Attribute Type Description
path single-valued The object path of the computer object to create.
Example: LDAP://ou=myOU,dc=dom,dc=com
class single-valued Provides the object class. Must be set to 'group'.
ou single-valued The name of the organizational unit.
Example: myOU

In addition to the mandatory attributes you can set various optional attributes. The following table
contains a list of some attributes you can set:

Attribute Type Description
description multi-valued The description of the OU. Despite this attribute is multi-valued, only the last description set in a multi-valued string will be displayed in the ADUC-tool (ADUC=Active Directory Users and Computers). E.g. if you set the description to Description1|Description2, only the value Description2 will be displayed in the ADUC-tool.
