The User Properties tab for an Active Directory service user defines general information about the user. The Active Directory service domain server sets and controls the fields that appear as read-only (Figure 1). The Metasys system controls all other fields, which are user modifiable and do not affect the account since it is maintained by the Active Directory service domain server.
