SCCM 2007 - Some OUs are not discovered in Active Directory System Discovery or in Active Directory User Discovery on a System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 site server

Consider the following scenario:
  • You enable the Active Directory System Discovery method or the Active Directory User Discovery method on a System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) site server.
  • You add the paths of some organizational unit (OU) to the Active Directory containers list. The Recursive search option is enabled.
  • Some OUs that are in the container list and some related child OUs share the same common name (CN).
In this scenario, some of these OUs that share the same CN are not discovered when the Active Directory System Discovery method or the Active Directory User Discovery method runs.



For example, the following OUs are added to the Active Directory containers list.
  • OU1
  • TestOU1
  • OU2
The "OU1" OU has the following child OUs:
  • TestOU1
  • TestOU4
  • TestOU5
The "OU2" OU has the following child OUs:
  • TestOU1
  • TestOU6
In this example, the "TestOU1" OU occurs three times. However, only one "TestOU1" OU is discovered when the Active Directory System Discovery method or the Active Directory User Discovery method runs.
