Edit Schema by adsiedit utility

I wanted to know what AD attributes picked by exchange for GAL and how we can modify them. Basically my objective is to change PAGER as VOIP from schema so that it would reflect both places (in AD as well as in GAL). please help me on that

k so to start with I wouldn't change the schema, as it could hose exchange.

What is it you want to change?  the dialog box that appears in outlook when you open a users details (the details template)

What version of Exchange to you have?  Exchange 2007 has a build in details template editor

You need to edit the details templates in Exchange to modify the GAL pages. You cannot modify the columns that appear in the GAL.

ou could use ADSI Edit to modify the AD schema if you wanted however I don't see any need to do so. You should not be modifying builtin attributes and in fact I think those are probably CAT1 which makes it impossible.

Contrary to what has been posted here, modifying the AD schema won't "hose exchange".

Thanks,

bdesmond: lets put it this way, if you change schema objects that exchange needs, it may stop working .. best not to do anything with the schema and change the display template
