The Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) utilities have been set up on Vista SP1 to manage remotely. No computer object can be put into Active Directory using the Active Directory Users plus. Other active directory objects can be added except computer objects. I will appreciate any help by providing solutions to my problem.

Hi Casie,

You have the option of using the DirectoryEntry component to add objects into your Active Directory.  To do configuration of the DirectoryEntry component you need to right click your project then choose to add reference this is on the shortcut menu. Add a reference to the system.DirectoryService.dll. From the component's tab drag a DirectoryEntry instance to the designer. Set the name of the DirectoryEntry component to the EntryPc then set the path of the DirectoryEntry component to WinNt//Domain/yourcomputername. If by chance you do not know the name of your computer then contact your administrative assistance. Press F5 to run the program.

Hi,

If you have the administrative rights, you can add computer objects easily. But it is better to let your AD, detect the computer object automatically, be sure that is already connected in the network so that you will avoid duplication.  Once, AD detects that computer, you can see it on the general tree. Move that up to its particular group. Be sure that if follows the same naming convention with your existing ones in AD. Check also the domain where it should appropriately belongs. If you are going to add a computer object manually, all you have to do is right-click on the group it should belong.

Hoping this helps.
