Limit on sub-OU's in SMS??

Is there a limit on how deep SMS will pick up OU's and sub-OU's?  I want to set up AD Discover on a site and the site admins have set up the Test OU as follows:


Would this cause any problems?

As far as numerical limits go, there shouldn't be a problem with this, depending on the SIZE of the contains of said OUs, you just need to take into consideration the time needed to collect all that data.

You cant really. Just do it. It's not so much a calculated delay, its more a case of the time to replicate the data back throughout the site.
