OK I have filez service installed on Linux server and and it's connected to active directory via ldap about active directory I have OU which contain all the users. I won't all the users using filez so I have to create another OU and some users will member in the both OUs. I hope I explained well. Thanks for your help – AAA-Super Nov 21 '11 at 13:10
AD OUs is not the best way to structure such a permission for this exact reason. – edusysadmin Jan 22 '12 at 19:23

I don't believe AD works that way. As far as I know, an object can only be a member of one OU.

If you're trying to apply group policies, it would make sense to create a security group and have the policy applied to all members of the group.

AD does not allow for aliases (aka shorcuts). – uSlackr Nov 18 '11 at 17:33
A security group is the best bet, especially if you it involves permission to resources like printers or directories. – hydroparadise Nov 18 '11 at 17:36
