Is it safe to move AD Security Groups from OU into another OU

Hello,

I am wondering if it is safe to move AD Security Groups from OU into another OU ?

I have checked that the Security Groups are not linked into any Global Policy

Thanks,



Groups are completely safe to move. The only objects you need to consider is Users and Computers. Also changing OU names might also create issues for legacy applications that are pointing to a specific OU rather than top level domain (domain.com).

This is the same for LDAP queries.

But if the groups have members will it be ok then ?



Yes Groups are completely fine, to move, with or without users.
