Dear All,

How can I add a new attribute in the AD and how can I appear this in the user properties?

Also I need to ask, how many application partition I can build in active directory & how can I see the current application partition?

Thanks

you want to look at adsiedit for schema extensions....not advisable unless you know what you are doign as this is the backbone of your AD
There are no limits on application partitions, just keep in mind the more you have, the more date you are going to replicate....
use dnscmd to manage them
