Need to add information into custom AD attributes
Posted on 2009-02-09
I have a customer who wants to use the Custom Attribute #1 and Custom Attribute #2 attributes in Windows 2000 Active Directory. I thought this ouldn't be too bad and loaded up the Exchange ADUC console. Unfortunately, half of these users (custom attribute #1) are contractors without mailboxes, which I am pretty sure means I cannot use ADUC to see these fields. How do I enter the information (4 word string) into AD? The good news is that their AD aware application will be using the info so the fields do not need to be visible in Active Directory Users and Computers, although that would be nice.
