Question:

Do not want to run displayspecifier.vbs script but instead would like to manually configure it using ADSIEdit.


Answer:

Here are the steps that can be used to accomplish what displayspecifier.vbs script does.

1. Open ADSIEdit, Right click on the ADSIEdit and choose "Connect to"
2. For the drop down of "Select well known naming context" - choose "Configuration" and Click "Ok" on this screen.
3. Expand "CN=Configuration..."
4. Expand "CN=DisplaySpecifiers"
5. Under the container " DisplaySpecifiers" there will be several containers. So it really depends on the languages that are configured to be supported in AD. For eg., CN=409 means it is US English
6. Lets choose the CN=409 container. On the right hand side displays CN objects.
7. Right click on object "CN=user-Display" and select properties. Double click on the property " adminPropertyPages" and Enter in the text box "Value to Add" -> "10,{543DBFE3-317D-4493-8D00-84591E4EDCDE}" and click "Add" button. Once done click "OK".
8. Right click on object "CN=group-Display" and select properties. Double click on the property " adminPropertyPages" and Enter in the text box "Value to Add" -> "5, {0CDC9AD0-E870-483f-8D16-17EAB3B7F881}" and click "Add" button. Once done click "OK".
9. Right click on object "CN=computer-Display" and select properties. Double click on the property " adminPropertyPages" and Enter in the text box "Value to Add" -> "8,{DB5E4BE1-A0F0-4e6c-AD8A-B46475D727CB}" and click "Add" button. Once done click "OK".
10. Right click on object "CN=inetOrgPerson-Display" and select properties. Double click on the property " adminPropertyPages" and Enter in the text box "Value to Add" -> "10,{543DBFE3-317D-4493-8D00-84591E4EDCDE}" and click "Add" button. Once done click "OK". In the above added values such as "10,{543DBFE3-317D-4493-8D00-84591E4EDCDE}" the "10" is the next highest available no. from the values that are already there in adminPropertyPages multivalued property. So this no. in the steps 7,8,9 might be different. So please substitute it accordingly, the GUID's have to be as is.
