    Hi Team,

    I have an requirement to set some exchange specific attributes in AD.

    Here is what i am trying to do....

    I need to get the value of "objectGUID" attribute from AD which is stored with a data type of GUID and populate this value on the ms-ds-consistencyguid attribute which should be stored as an array with members of data type Byte (ByteArray).

    Anyone knows if IDM support this conversion OOB.

    The AD connector does not manage that attribute. You would need some custom IDM code (Xpress Policy, Event Listener, etc.) to directly contact the domain controller.But then you'd need to find a way for IDM to store it as ByteArray or convert within your code to something that can be recognized by the directory.xml.
