Hotfix installation informationThis hotfix contains a schema update to rename the earlier schema attributes. This action lets you update Active Directory for Windows Server 2003 R2. To apply this hotfix, follow these steps:
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
Any applications or scripts that try to read the value of the attributes that are mentioned in the "Cause" section may now not get the information that is stored in them because the attributes that stored the information have been renamed to have a prefix of MSSFU2x-. All such applications and scripts should be modified to query the attributes with their new names, or the information that is stored in the respective attributes should be migrated to the corresponding new RFC2307-compliant attributes to maintain the compatibility.
