Although I can use any ldapmodify capable tool to do this, I was
wondering what the "recommended" way that we should be telling customers
who want to change OU trees?

e.g, say in a high school using IPA, they wished to create a parent OU
called cn=school accounts,dc=example,dc=com and inside that OU there are
two more OU's. One for staff and one for students?

Presumably this is not possible through the webUI.

Also what are the implications if I move a user that was created with
"ipa user-add" into a non-default OU? will it break anything? Whats the
best way to move an existing user into one of the above OU's?

IPA only supports flat name spaces, you cannot partition the default containers. This was an early IPA design decision.

If you use ldapmodify to move entries it will break your IPA installation.

You can however assign users, hosts, etc. to groups. Then use group membership to control how a particular group of users behaves. It's easy to automate group membership via automember.
