ADModify is the best tool to do it , I would say

For Example – I may have to set or clear the value of this attribute “msExchQueryBaseDN” in Exchange 2010

Clearing for some users might be simple to do it , But in Bulk Admodify is one of the best tool to do it

You can choose any tab and Customize in Bulk

In our Case its – attribute “msExchQueryBaseDN”

Choose “Custom” tab

 

5 Tasks

————-

1. Have Checked “Make a customized attribute modification”

2. Entered the attribute Name – Where I need to modify

3. Attribute Value

4. Check “MultiValued Append”

— Why yo Choose “MultiValued Append”

If there is Entry already available – Where some attributes have multiple entries – It does not going to remove the Existing ones.

Instead adds an Extra entry to the same attribute

— Check or Uncheck – Depends on your situation –

By default you can check it Cause it won’t bring you harm if you happen to edit a attribute which has multiple values

5. Choose Go

It will add the Entries on all the Chosen objects

  1. Hi Satheshwaran,

    Thanks for the guide. May I ask for your help as to what command should I use for the Custom LDAP Query if I would like to set the attribute msExchRecipientTypeDetails to value “16”.
    The environment has the mixture of Ex2003, 2007 and 2010. There are about 500 “room” mailboxes (Exchange 2003) that I want to migrate them to Exchange 2010.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Thanks,

  2. Hey good stuff, do you know where you can get the new ADMODIFY for 2012 and 2016, thank you
