AD - Staging OU

Temporary staging Active Directory Organizational Unit for computers.

  • Provide the Active Directory broker account access to create computer objects in this OU.
  • Start the path with ldap:// prefix.
  • Do not use any special characters other than whats really required.

If the computer object is already in an OU other than the  “Staging OU”, the broker account should have access to the source OU in Active Directory to successfully move the computer into the “Staging OU”.

DCOM hardening issue.

This application fails to authenticate with WMI on the SCCM server because Microsoft has not yet hardened DCOM on their Windows Preinstallation Environment. We are working on a different approach, but it will only be released during the first quarter of 2024. But until that time, the only workaround will be to uninstall the update corresponding to KB5004442.
