DIRECTORY SERVICES -Filter an ADSI Attribute

(Exchange 2010)

Hello all,
My goal is to locate all the employees in the company and add an Exchange Custom Attribute.  Now the only field that identifies the user as an employee is in ADSI Edit, which was updated thru a Schema change.  

When I run the following cmd below in EMS, it appears to complete but does not not add 'Employee' to EMC Custom Attribute4


$Searcher = New-Object -Typename DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher ($domain = [ADSI]"")
$Searcher.filter = "(&(objectClass=user)(HRPro=TRUE))"
$userResult = $Searcher.findall()
$Empl = $userResult
<#

######################################
$Empl | Foreach{
      $Entry = $_.GetDirectoryEntry()
      $DN = ($Entry.DistinguishedName).ToString()
      $scriptpath = ($Entry.scriptpath).ToString()
      Set-Mailbox $DN -CustomAttribute4 “Employee”}

$Searcher = New-Object -Typename DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher ($domain = [ADSI]"")
$Searcher.filter = "(&(objectClass=user)(HRPro=TRUE))"
$userResult = $Searcher.findall()
$employeeList =@()
$userResult |
      ForEach-Object      {
            $directoryEntry = $_.GetDirectoryEntry()

            $user = new-object Object
            $user | add-Member Noteproperty SamAccountName $directoryEntry.SamAccountName.ToString()
            $user | add-Member Noteproperty omiOracleHRProvision $directoryEntry.omiOracleHRProvision.ToString()
            $user | add-Member Noteproperty EmployeeType $directoryEntry.employeeType.ToString()
            $user | add-Member Noteproperty Department $directoryEntry.Department.ToString()
            $user | add-Member Noteproperty Company $directoryEntry.Company.ToString()
            $user | add-Member Noteproperty extensionAttribute4 $directoryEntry.extensionAttribute4.ToString()
            $employeeList += $user

            $directoryEntry.Put( 'extensionAttribute4', 'Employee' )
            $directoryEntry.SetInfo()                                
      }

If I run a partial cmd, it does work and provides me with the number of employees that have TRUE in ADSIEdit.  I'm not sure how to connect both cmds where I can retrieve the employees and add the custom attribute in EMC.


$Searcher = New-Object -Typename DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher ($domain = [ADSI]"")
$Searcher.filter = "(&(objectClass=user)(HRPro=TRUE))"
$userResult = $Searcher.findall()
$userResult.count
