AD schema update

Hello expert team,

I have a customer who want to modify the AD schema and add a new extended attribute for all employees , because by mistake the original attribute was setup with a multi home value, and they needed as unique value

Can you please indicate step by steps with screenshots what needs to be done in the AD schema to push this change? Please, indicate tools to use, such as LDIFDE, or ADDSI edit, or FIM, whatever is the easiest way to accomplish this

see below current field on the attached gif

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Note: Deleting from schema is not feasible, but you can modify it or disable the attribute.
