Organizational units in Active Directory Domain Services cannot be configured

Updated: May 26, 2011

Applies To: Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard

Problem   Organizational units in Active Directory Domain Services cannot be configured.

Features affected   Permissions for organizational units (OUs) in Windows SBS 2011 Standard failed. Any feature that works with the OUs does not work (for example, the Add User Wizard).

Resolution    Due to the number of complex product interactions and dependent tasks related to the failure in configuring the organizational units in Active Directory Domain Services, manual steps to recover from this failure cannot be provided at this time.

To recover from this error, perform the following steps:

  1. Restore the source domain from a backup, as described in the guide that applies to your source domain.

  2. After you restore the source domain, reinstall Windows SBS 2011 Standard as described in the guide that applies to your migration.

You can also contact Microsoft Product Support to receive support in isolating the source of the failure so that you can correct it before restarting the migration process.
