Extend Active Directory Schema with OWA-Schema.vbs

Exchange 2000 Server Service Pack 2 includes the OWA-Schema.vbs import script. This script automatically completes each task described in the Extend Active Directory Schema Manually section.


To run the OWA-Schema.vbs script:

  1. Copy OWA-Schema.vbs and OWA-Schema.ldf from the Support\OWASCHEMA folder of Exchange 2000 Server Service Pack 2 to a directory in which you have read/write permissions.
  2. In the new directory, type OWA-Schema.vbs.

Segmenting Outlook Web Access Per User

After you update the Active Directory schema, use the Windows 2000 ADSI Edit tool to set the appropriate value on the user's MsExchMailboxFolderSet attribute. Click the figure below to see the bitmask that determines this value. For example, according to the table in the figure, the decimal value for contacts is 4, the decimal value for calendaring is 2, and the decimal value for messaging is 1. To enable Contacts, Calendar, and Inbox for an Outlook Web Access user, set the attribute value to 7. Enlarge figure

Note   For information about how to use ADSI Edit to modify an attribute of an Active Directory user object, see Windows 2000 Server documentation.
