TL;DR:

How can I make user objectClass in Active Directory to inherit the attributes from my custom xyz objectClass?

More text:

This seemed to be any easy task, but I I have been searching and trying for couple of hours with no success.

I have a simple fresh Active Directory Domain Controller, and all users has user objectClass.

Now when I create a custom attribute and add it to user objectClass, I find it every user's attributes (i.e. administrator will have this new custom attribute, user abc will have it, etc...).

But what I want to do is, creating my different objectClasses for each service, let's say, an objectClass for OpenVPN where all OpenVPN service attributes are organized. And then I want user objectClass to inherit all those attributes from OpenVPN objectClass.

I tried the following: In user objectClass property, in relationship tab, auxiliary classes, I added OpenVPN objectClass, but that did nothing. I don't know what does this relationship should do.

Could some body help me in that?

OK that seems a little bit not related to the question, but I will share my experience, maybe that helps some one.

According to what I said:

I tried the following: In user objectClass property, in relationship tab, auxiliary classes, I added OpenVPN objectClass, but that did nothing. I don't know what does this relationship should do.

Actually that works! That is pretty simply the method to do what I wanted.

The problem was, that doing refresh in Active Directory Users and Computers program doesn't show the new added attributes (even if AD was restarted). Your LDAP browser (let's say AD Users and Computers) should be completely closed and reopened (not only refreshed) to show the new added attributes.

  • This is the correct approach if you want to add multiple related attributes to an LDAP objectClass. – user2871239 Sep 20 '17 at 13:38
