FIM sync users to separate OUs - attribute msExchOriginatingForest missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I'm using FIM 2010 R2 Synchronization Service to sync users from two user forests to a third (Exchange 2010) resource forest. It creates disabled user accounts like it should, no problem there. Problem is; all users end up in the same OU while we would like to keep them separated, based on their originating forest.

    I found this article: I followed it step by step but there's no msExchOriginatingForest attribute on  the configured attribute flow nor in the Metaverse attribute list. I did add it on the 'select attributes' page.

    Then I saw that I don't have the Metaverse object type 'Person' but 'SyncObject' instead - 'Person' is not even in the list. This might be caused by the fact that I'm using the FIM code mentioned in ?

    Now my question is: can I manually add the attribute msExchOriginatingForest somehow? Maybe in the Metaverse designer? If so, using which parameters? Or should I absolutely use 'Person' instead?

    Any help would be appreciated!
