I know, like the blogging world needs yet another post on AD User Attributes. There are so many out there and countless other message boards however, as I set and listen to Bill Withers sing his classic song "Lean On Me" I can't help but think maybe I should put a fresh post out for those who are new to SharePoint and new to this whole thing called AD.
I know what your thinking, why waist the energy on something this simple. I have only one answer.
Because it must be done. SharePoint loves to consume external data if given the chance.
