Question - ARS 6.9 Workflow How to Filter out a specific sub OU

I have a compliance requirement.  All new server objects must be added to X policy filtering group in 3 of our AD's

I have workflow setup - to detect a computer created under domain\Xservers  (for which there are sub OU's for IIS/SQL/FILE/SharePoint ... etc

I want to filter out further processing on any new computer creation executed in the SharePoint OU.

Everything fires off fine - except the filter.    Unless I'm misunderstanding filters ... the workflow checks for new creation under the XServers OU and only begins the if/then policy blocks defined in the GUI - if it's under XServers AND not in a sub OU named SharePoint ...

Regardless of which path property of the target object I evaluate, SharePoint servers end up in the group like the other WinServers do.

Ideas on how to prevent the workflow from continuing past the initiate 'create' trigger - based on a word in the directory path to the object?

  • What was mentioned here - should have worked for me ...  The Computer object continued to be added to the policy filtering group  despite being filtered for an OU named W2K3 or SharePoint...  If I had a longer attention span -or more time to play before I had to implement. - I'd stay with it.    I fell back to script policy.   I had 3 domains to link this to - so I linked the policy to the windows server OU in each domain.   This is the last change I have to make in ARS 6.9 - as we are working to deploy ARS 7 in the coming weeks.

    ... and this is working.   Which - is like a plus, or something.

    function onPostCreate($Request)
        $strObjClass = $Request.Class
        if ($strObjClass -eq "computer")
    [string]$strPath = $request.DN
    if($strPath -notmatch "(SHAREPOINT|W2K3)"){
        $strGroup = "POLICYX Group"
        $strDOM = (($strPath -split "DC=",0)[1].split(",")).split()[0]
        add-qadgroupmember -identity "$strDOM\$strGroup" -Member $strPath -erroraction silentlycontinue -proxy
