Can the MMC console rename Exchange custom attributes?

Directory and Resource Administrator 6.60


The MMC uses a text file to pull the labels from.  When the attribute is renamed with native tools,this text file can be edited so that the name displayed matches the name in Native tools as follows:

  1. Open the Properties-msg.txt file located in the ....\Inetpub\wwwroot\DRAWeb\Admin\lib\lang\mailbox\en-us directory on the IIS server running the DRA Web Component.
  2. Locate the section the following section:
    • // Custom Attributes tab
      CAP_CUSTOM_ATTR1="Custom attribute (1)"
      CAP_CUSTOM_ATTR2="Custom attribute (2)"
      CAP_CUSTOM_ATTR3="Custom attribute (3)"
      CAP_CUSTOM_ATTR4="Custom attribute (4)"
      CAP_CUSTOM_ATTR5="Custom attribute (5)"
      CAP_CUSTOM_ATTR6="Custom attribute (6)"
      CAP_CUSTOM_ATTR7="Custom attribute (7)"
      CAP_CUSTOM_ATTR8="Custom attribute (8)"
      CAP_CUSTOM_ATTR9="Custom attribute (9)"
      CAP_CUSTOM_ATTR10="Custom attribute (10)"
  3. Edit the text between the quotes to match the name given the attribute with Native tools.
  4. Close and relaunch the MMC console.
  5. Verify that the MMC now displays the new value instead of the standard "Custom attribute" label .
