When I use a group to apply AD settings to machines, some of the AD settings are remembered, but the OU is not.
If I’m wrong and this is not expected behavior feel free to tell me what I’m doing wrong, but from what I’ve read in the forums this seems to be by design.
Since the other fields are all filled in, but the OU is not, and since a blank value for the OU causes it to use the default, this makes it very easy to accidentally revert the existing OU assigned to machines back to the default value.
Having a blank value be the default, and also having that blank value cause a destructive change is a bad combination.
If the OU cannot be stored for the group for some reason, then there should be an option when applying group settings to keep the previously assigned value rather than replacing it with the default.
The OU is a particularly bad field to have this behavior, as it’s the most likely to be long and complex and hard to remember.
