Active Direcotry user attributes disappears after sometime after being updated


Recently I am being floored by a strange issue. When I update the mobile attribute of a user account properties, it updates and I can see it updated but aftersome time it disappears.

If I do repadmin /objmeta domain-controller <DN path>, I can see that it updates....

I have even tried it from the server holding the PDC Emulator role, no luck.

Worth directly updating the schema? (I know it's not the way to go...:))

Anyone came across similar issues?

Hi Ochen Ao,

Thanks for your post.

Please enable auditing feature in the Active Directory to audit changes to objects in AD DS.

The events that are generated by these actions appear in the Security log in Event Viewer.

You could post the event log if you have any problem.

Best Regards,

Mary Dong
