Extenstion Attribute for user accounts in active directory

My company would like to utilize an unused attribute for user accounts in active directory so that we can assign a 4 digit "site" to the user.

So the question is how do we use the attribute (such as extensionattribute10) and be able to easily add the site code for an OU?  Can we make that attribute visible in the ADUC screen when viewing a user?  Maybe somewhere within the bottom of the General or Address tabs?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi there,

This should get you started, please just be careful when editing AD like this especially in ADSI Edit, I would suggest you try it in a LAB first.
