Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Unfortunately this is not possible (that i know of). All of the users in AD have this property and there are no restrictions based on uniqueness for this arrtibute like sAMAccountName.

What you could do is modfiy the attribute security so that only specific users can modify this setting so that there are limited users that have access to modify this attribute.
