We are migrating to Microsoft Online Services, BPOS in particular. We do not run Exchange in our new production environment. However, we do want to take advantage of syncing certain AD attributes to the hosted service. For this we figured we could simply extend the schema of AD with the Exchange 2007 install media to get access to the attributes.
I spun up a test VM running as a domain controller and mounted the Exchange 2007 SP1 media and launched an admin command prompt (Box is a 2008 R2 server standard). I ran
I rebooted the DC and checked the user attributes using ADUC and the Advanced View Attribute Editor and none of the exchange attributes are showing up.
Note: I also ran another test to include the following commands and nothing shows up again:
"setup /prepareschema" "setup /preparead /organizationname: "MyOrg" "setup /preparealldomains"
However, after doing all of this none of the schema attributes show up. Does anyone have any idea on how to get the schema loaded or what I might be missing? Let me know if you need more details.
