Have you ever been in that situation where you need to make a change to an AD attribute of a Lync / Skype for Business contact object, or RGS object, or any object other than a standard user? Consider the scenario where you want to hide Application Contacts from the user’s address book. These contacts may be Response Groups, or Trusted Application Endpoints. If you read the massively useful blog posts that guide you through how to do this then you’ll quickly realise you have to immerse yourself in ADSI Edit.
One of the biggest problems with ADSIEdit is that although it is incredibly powerful, it is also incredibly unfriendly to admins. Look at your Application Contacts object for instance and you’ll see a massive list of object guids and you will think “how the <expleative of your choice> am I supposed to find the object I need to edit in this list!”.
