    Hi @nobody

    You can use -Path such as:

    New-ADUser -Name "ChewDavid" -Type iNetOrgPerson -Path "ou=subunit,ou=unit,dc=contoso,dc=com" -Server lds.Fabrikam.com:50000

    So for your example in your screenshot:

    New-ADUser -Name "ChewDavid" -Type iNetOrgPerson -Path "ou=Group,ou=Students,dc=contoso,dc=com" -Server lds.Fabrikam.com:50000
