Creating custom attribute using ExtensionAttribute Exchange 2010
Posted on 2014-02-12
As always, I'm coming to my wonderful source for solutions to my question.
I work for a school district and we're becoming a Google district. The email address needs to be "email@example.com" and our main email address is longer (firstname.lastname@example.org). We have 2 accepted domains (the k12.ca.us and just the .us) but the authoritative domain is the k12.ca.us one.
I thought I had changed the AD mail attribute to the shorter "domain.us" but something (probably an Exchange server reboot) changed it back. This has caused an issue with the synchronization of our AD accounts with Google drive.
I'm pretty sure I can use any of the ExtensionAttribute1-15 attributes to create a custom attribute without having to extend the schema.
What I need is assistance with the powershell command or script that will allow me to first name the attribute and then use a .CSV file to populate the email address for each staff and student account.
Please point me in the right direction. I'm still somewhat new to powershell and am not a programmer but I can handle up to moderately complex commands and scripts.
Thanks for any input.
