Extending Active Directory Schema -- obtaining OIDs
Posted on 2009-12-16
I am trying to extend my AD schema by adding a few attributes. I understand almost everything I need to do, but the one thing I am stuck on is the "X.500 OID" field when creating the new attribute. I have searched around but have not found much. I found a few sites that say I need to generate or obtain new OIDs in order to create attributes. But as far as I can tell generating them is not advised which leaves me to obtaining them. I looked all over Microsoft's site but was unable to find how I can obtain new OIDs. Is this something no one does anymore? Is there an easier way to create attributes in AD? Can I make up new OIDs?
Thanks in advance for the help.
