In some cases you will need to change the "OU" settings that use for new users/computers store.
However, the "Redirusr" and "Redircmp" set "IsCriticalSystemObject" attribute to "TRUE" and by this forbidden

To revert to the default settings you will need to run the following commands:
This command will redirect all new users accounts to the "Users" container.
