not sure really what you mean, but no, the EEM group and OU don't have to be related at all.
You can't do a wildcard search from a "search groups" field in the connector though, in fact, I don't believe AD supports that at all from anywhere. If it was to work, you'd need to do it from the base search.
Sorry for the confusion. What I am trying to say is that my search group is diferent then the mapping.
Users belong to a group that is in a completely diferent OU then the search group. I tried it and it did not work.
The AD admin wants to put all the encrypted groups in a single OU so that he can manage them better, but the users are going to be in 20 other Parallel OUs.

the OU does not matter unless you're using that for something else - but you can't use a * in a search group - it does not support wildcards.
