Consider the following scenario:
For example, you create two Organizational Units (OUs) under an OU which is named “Organization Computers”, and then you name the OUs "abc" and "abcd." You add a search path of domain\Organization Computers\abc for the first OU, and then you add a search path of domain\Organization Computers\abcd for the second OU. In this scenario, the second OU is not discovered when the Active Directory System Discovery process or the Active Directory User Discovery process runs.
