An object to move can be specified by DN, SID, GUID, UPN or Domain\Name, or it can be located by using a Get- cmdlet and then piped into the Move- cmdlet. The destination container can be specified by DN or GUID.


Move the PC called 'newpc' (in domain SS64Dom) to the same OU as that where the PC 'oldpc' currently resides. This is handy when replacing one PC with another.

PS C:> move-qadobject -identity 'SS64dom\newpc' –newparentcontainer (get-qadcomputer 'SS64Dom\oldpc$').parentcontainer
