Active Directory Add/Remove Columns - Made the change to the extraColumn part of the Display Specifier of choice but nothing is changing?

I have a windows 2003 domain.  I am trying to configure AD to allow for some more columns when you open ADUC.  I have made the change to CN=409,CN=DisplaySpecifiers,CN=Configuration,DC=torreynet,DC=local using Adsiedit.  Unfortunately the columns are still not available. I have restarted the netlogon service as well as rebooted the server. Can anyone give me some advice?  Have I missed something?  I dont want to script this.  I just want the column.  Much easier to manage.

i havent found too much documentation on this but if someone has detailed documentation to troubleshoot this i would appreciate it.

I want to add the columns to the default Users container, the default computers container as well as when I do saved queries.  Any help would greatly be appreciated.  I think this is something a little more advanced so i will definately make the points available.

thanks.

Under the below support article, MS suggest using LDP for modifying and adsiedit for veriftication.

Thanks for the help.  But this still does not solve all of my problem. The containers that I want the functionality to dont have it.  Computers, Users.  The created OU's are good to go, but the main ones that i want are not working.  the default-display has all the needed extra columns as well.

Any ideas why this is still not working for those containers?

Me too. I made the change to the extraColumn part of the Display Specifier of choice but nothing is changing.. I only changed the extracolumn in default-display and I see that the extracolumn in user-display is <Not Set>.
