Add Exchange 2010 Attributes in Exchange-less local domain

Download Exchange 2010 installation files. You can download the trial here:

Before we begin I would recommend:
· Make sure you have a good backup of your AD and Server (test it)
· Restart your AD server to complete any pending updates, installers, …
· Run MS AD Replication Status Tool to make sure AD is ready

Extract the installer to C:\TempExch as shown below

Now when you edit the properties of a user you can edit added Exchange Attributes from the “Attributes Editor” without ADSIedit as shown below:
