Adding ACS 5.1 to a specific ActiveDirectory OU

Unanswered Question
Jan 7th, 2010


I´m trying add a ACS 5.1 appliance to our ActiveDirectory.

When I add the machine, it creates a account in the "Computers" OU.

Because of our security-policy, I´m not able to get a user with permissions to add the machine to "Computers".

I just get a User to add the machine to a specific OU, but I´m not able to specifiy this OU in the ACS configuration.

Is there a way to tell the ACS in which OU it should create the machine account?

regards Dirk

I have this problem too.

I worked around a similar constraint by having our AD admins create the computer object with the name of the ACS system, then give my AD account rights over that object. Then I was able to join ACS to AD using my own AD credentials.
