Exchange 2000.  Have a user that I need to unhide so I can make a profile for it.  Have a working profile on one workstation, so I know the mailbox is ok.

In Active Directory (windows server 2000), can't find the "Exchange Advanced" tab mentioned in a previous post on this topic.  I know I have seen that tab before, but it is not showing up now, so cannot unhide the user.

Go to Exchange system manager and then recipient update service and right click on it click rebuild and check after some time whether you got exchange advanced tab.

No, the Exchange Advanced tab does not seem to be available for any user.  I started the rebuild - it said it could take several hours, so will check again tomorrow AM.

Ok, the rebuild seems to be done and no change - still no advanced tab.  But I figured it out:  in Active Directory Users and Computers there is a VIEW submenu on the menu.  This submenu has an ADVANCED FEATURES option.  if this option is unchecked, you do not see the Exchanged Advanced tab.  if it is checked you do see it.
