Modifying User’s attributes using Windows 2008

Share this:

Hello Folks,

Windows 2008 has a lot of new features, one of those is very useful for us (Exchange guys). Now, we don’t need to use ADSIEdit.msc to change the values, we can do that through a new tab called Attribute Editor that can be found in the User’s properties.

We can also filter as the same way that we used to do in AdsiEdit.msc (Only fields with values, mandatory, optional etc..). We can be editing the specifc attribute in the same Tool (Active Directory Users and Computers, DSA.msc)
