I have Samba 3.0.2a and a w2k domain-controller installed.
I wanted to test creating computer accounts in special
containers on the active directory.

Creating the computer account inside the standard folder
"Computers" works fine. But how can I create an account
inside an userdefined folder / organizational directory?

I have tried

<server>\<org. directory>\<org. directory>


<org. dir.>\<org. dir.>

and many other combinations.

The machine account has been created neither in
"Computers" nor anywhere.

Furthermore I think it is not possible to create an
organizational directory or folder under "Computers".

"Computers" seems to be a system directory. I have no chance there
 to create folders or organizational directories.

Correct me if i am wrong.

Thanks in advance
