How to Create Container in SCCM 2012?

When the conventional classes and features in the base Active Directory schema do not fulfil your requirements, you need to outspread the schema by transforming or adding fresh classes and features. However, you should only extend the schema when it is absolutely required. One of the stress-free ways to extend the schema is through the Schema Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in. You should always improve and check your schema extensions in a test lab before transfering them to your production network. Additionally, you can transform the schema through graphical user interface (GUI) tools, command-line tools, and through scripting. Also you can change the schema by using the Active Directory Schema snap-in in Microsoft Management Console (MMC), which is a GUI tool for schema management.

To create a container, you need to login to domain controller with a domain admin account. You need to follow the blow mentioned steps for creating container in SCCM 2012.
