Good day,


SEPM is intergated with AD.

A machine is under an OU on AD.  I create a SEP package and point to the Default group.I install the Default package I just created on that machine.


On SEPM will that machine be under the Default group or it will sit under it's OU like on AD?

Thank you

However once you have imported OU's and deploy SEP Client ..all the client will go to their respective AD containers in SEPM. 

If any client are present in Default AD Computers Containers sep client will show Default location

Thanks In Advance

It will be reflect in AD assigned group because of AD integeration. Only those client will reflect in Default which are not in OU group.

Regarding AD integration with SEPM:

An Organizational Unit is treated as a special type of group because the imported organizational unit and the accounts in that unit cannot be modified. However, the organizational unit along with its data can be deleted as a whole by the administrator. Groups cannot be created under the Organizational Unit. The parent of an Organizational Unit can be the Group or the Organizational Unit. The administrator can select accounts from an Organizational Unit and move them to a specified group, for example, the administrator can create a group for remote users, move all of the remote users from their current organizational unit to a newly created group and assign a group policy that is tailored for the remote users in that group.

if the client is part of AD, it will move to the OU after SEPM is synched with AD.
