Hi Ian -

     Just FYI - same frustration here.  We actually called our TAM
about it a few years ago and after some research the response came
back that it would require a DCR to implement having COMPUTERS
selected by default in the object picker dialog boxes.  We gave up :-(

It is definitely frustrating for me too. I find myself always
forgetting to change the objectType as well. Unfortunately, I am not
aware of any way to change the default behavior either.

There is nothing in GP to change the default object type in that list
that I'm aware of.

When I want to add a machine to a group, an activity mostly connected
with GP deployment, I get either an error (if I remember to click
'Check name') or a list of users (if I hit 'Enter'). I need to add
'Computers' to the object types being searched in order for that to
work.

That is, I want to avoid having to:

- click 'Object types'
- select 'Computers'
- click 'OK'

every time. I want that 'Computer's object type to be pre-selected.

I'm sorry Ian, I don't understand what you're trying to do; could you
give more detail of what you're trying to "manipulate" in the AD U&C
MMC?

Thanks.

Subject: [gptalk] Adding 'Computers' as a default chosen object type

I am continually frustrated by the need to add 'Computers' as an
object type when manipulating the 'Active Directory Users and
Computers' MMC plug-in. Is there a way to force that type to be added
as a default?
