Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

if you are expecting a file path then there isn't one. Once uploaded they are stored within the user object in the active directory database.

If they have been imported in the standard way through exchange then they shouldn't have uploaded if they are more than 10kb i.e. the import would have failed
Thumb nail photo is attribute in the schema. Its Range-Upper value set to default 100KB. You need to change it to 10kb by editing schema.

The thumbnailPhoto attribute itself supports photos of up to 100K, but the Import-RecipientDataProperty cmdlet in Exchange 2010 allows you to import only 10K or smaller files.
