Q

How can I take ownership of an OU or group object in AD?

Is there any method or tool that can help to take ownership of the organizational unit (OU) object or group object in Active Directory?
It's not possible to take ownership of objects like the OU object or group object; this is part of the way Active Directory works. These are objects that are integral to the structure of Active Directory, so no one owns them.
