SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. On a Windows Server 2003-based computer, you use the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in to change the attributes of a user account. Specifically, you set the Country/region attribute to one of the following values:
  • Jersey
  • Guernsey
  • Isle of Man
In this scenario, the ISO country code for the specified country or region is set to an invalid value. You may notice this symptom when you view the CountryCode attribute of the user object in an Active Directory editing tool such as Adsiedit.msc.

Note User accounts that are created by Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI) scripts have the correct ISO country code.

CAUSE

The current Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in in Windows Server 2003 does not reflect the updated country codes.
