Moving Computer Accounts in AD

I need to move Computer accounts within Active Directory from the Computers container (default location) into a domain OU so that GPO's can be applied to these computers. I've searched for scripts on the Internet that can perform this task automatically and found many different verities but I'm not a scripting guy and would very much like a batch file ready made in order to accomplish my goal. I understand that changes to the script will be necessary to cater for my domain naming convention so I'll be prepared for that. If scripting isn't the right way to go then please provide an alternative solution. Many Thanks in advance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

<a href=”http://www.fontanatech.net”>Depending on how many you have to move and to how many different groups you plan to move them to, you may not need a script… If you are talking less than a few hundred, probably just as easy to move them manually…

If you have a few thousand, then script is the way to go. Check out Script Logic, it is a good tool for managing AD.
