Exchange 2000 custom attributes via CF LDAP

Posted on 2004-11-17

I have and LDAP call working now with Exchange 5.5 that retrieves the Exchange custom attibute 2 field. The call is
              ATTRIBUTES="...,Extension-Attribute-2, ..."

This no longer works with Exchange 2000 with the Active Directory connector.  Anyone know how to access the Custom Attribute fields via a CF LDAP call in Exchange 2000?

    Found the solution myself: under AD ,the Custom Attributes are now referenced as "extensionAttribute2" (e.g.). that is, they removed the dashes. BTW, I discovered this by using a nifty form of the CFLDAP call : if you specify ATTRIBUTES="*", instead of a query object, the call returns a structure with ALL of the available attributes listed. Do a CFDUMP on it, and you can see all the CFLDAP names (which may differ significantly from the Exchange attribute names).
