Default location for search in active directory

Is there a way to change the default location that is opened when searching the Active directory?

By default it is set to search the whole domain.
(when you search users and computers etc, from this location)

Instead, I want the default search to be limited to a OU within that domain.


Is this even possible?

The reason I'm asking is because I want to prevent disabled users from showing in search suggestions, by moving them to a separate OU.



Thanx in advance for all the answers...

Hi,
Do you mean you want to search in active directory through the following way:

If so , you can customer the location
83158-3313.jpg
83161-3314.jpg
If you do the research use the command , you can modify the command to limit the location.

Best Regards,

My question is: IS it possible to be able to change this location to a specific OU, as a DEFAULT, and not to search the whole domain?

The default location is the whole domain :(
