What AD-object attribute can I use for names with vowel mutations?
Posted on 2012-03-28
We would like to use word macros to query the AD and read out some info about the author of that document including his family name. Some of our users have mutated vowels (umlauts) in their family names. As we never put umlauts into any AD attributes before, I wonder if there are known problems to do so (which is what I expect).
For example, I found out that exchange servers don't like the user attribute "displayNamePrintable" to be populated with vowel mutations.
So my goal is: if I want to keep the user name (cname) attribute free of umlauts, what other attribute can be used without running into problems?
AD is on 2008 functional level, by the way.
