Step 1: Change the format of the GUID to a format that you can use in an LDAP queryNote The GUID is composed of five sections. Each section is separated by a hyphen (-). This procedure uses the following GUID as an example:
- Use a backslash (\) to separate each pair of numbers in the GUID.
After you complete this step, the GUID is in the following format:\a3\ac\ae\e7-\cb\14-\44\66-\83\ce-\1d\d1\17\b5\46\dc
- Reverse the pairs in the first section, the second section, and the third section. Do not change the fourth section or the fifth section.
After you complete this step, the GUID is in the following format:\e7\ae\ac\a3-\14\cb-\66\44-\83\ce-\1d\d1\17\b5\46\dc
- Remove the hyphens.
After you complete this step, the GUID is in the following format:\e7\ae\ac\a3\14\cb\66\44\83\ce\1d\d1\17\b5\46\dcUse this GUID in the LDAP query.
Step 2: Use LDP.exe to search all domains for the recipient name that maps to the GUIDWarning If you use the ADSI Edit snap-in, the LDP utility, or any other LDAP version 3 client, and you incorrectly modify the attributes of Active Directory objects, you can cause serious problems. These problems may require you to reinstall Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server, Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, or both Windows and Exchange. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems that occur if you incorrectly modify Active Directory object attributes can be solved. Modify these attributes at your own risk.
