How to update every single Active Directory User Attributes with Powershell – Part 3

From time to time, I always struggle a little, on how to update specific AD Attributes or I am not sure what is the correct property Name. So this should be a good list, of “all” Active Directory User Attributes, and how you can Update, Change, Set or Clear with PowerShell. So I have created a script of how to set, modify, or clear custom attributes in Active Directory with PowerShell

Starting with the Blog Idea is thought I will go through each Attribute on the “Attribute Editor” Tab. Very quickly I came to the conclusion to limit the List a little, as there are several attributes where it makes no sense to update them through PowerShell. So this list is huge, but not a complete Attribute List.
