you can use code below to check what are  the limits fordifferent user attributes in AD (taken from
$schema =[DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.ActiveDirectorySchema]::GetCurrentSchema()
## I'm looking for user attributes and the property I'm looking for is an optional attribute
## The rangeUpper attribute is what tells us the max length of what can go into that particular attribute
$schema.FindClass('user').optionalproperties | select name,rangeupper

Open in new window

For extensionAttribute12 it is 2048 characters.
