How to move Bulk Active Directory Users from one OU to another OU

This article describes how to bulk move Active Directory users from one Organizational Unit to another using ADManager Plus. While the native tools and PowerShell make this task cumbersome and tiring, ADManager Plus let you accomplish this in just a few mouse clicks.

Moving a User Account

A real-time scenario in moving a user account from one OU to another could occur,

  • When a user gets transferred from one department to another in an organization.
  • When a user's account becomes inactive.
  • When a user's account has been disable

Different methods of moving a user account using ADManager Plus

You can move Active Directory users from one OU to another with ADManager Plus by the following methods,

  • Importing the list of users to be moved from a CSV file.
  • Search the list of users individually and move them to the desired OU.
  • Move users from the generated reports page of ADManager Plus. i.e., generate a Inactive User or Disabled Users report and move them to the appropriate container.
