Re: Wrong OU

Hi User29249528,

May i know the EPO version with build number. Could you please show me a screenshot of AD sync page. Please strike out all sensitive information in the screenshot and then upload.

Possible causes :

Wrong configuration

Same OU structure not imported in ePO.

Re: Wrong OU

How is your sync set up - are you doing it as ad structure and move systems to the synchronized group?  Do you also have any sorting criteria set up on the groups in the system tree?  A system will move to lost and found if sorting is enabled and the system doesn't apply to any of the sorting criteria.

You should also use one or the other, not both methods.  I don't know how yours is set up, but if using both, then they can cause inconsistencies.
