The Active Directory design team creates the organizational unit (OU) structure for the target domain. This team also defines the groups that are responsible for the administration of each OU and the membership of each group. You can use that information and the following procedure to configure the target domain for administration.

To configure the target domain OU structure for administration

  1. Log on as an administrator to any domain controller in the target domain.

  2. Start Active Directory Users and Computers, and then create the OU structure that your design team specified.

  3. Create administrative groups, and assign users to these groups.

  4. Delegate the administration of the OU structure to groups as defined by your design team.
