Appreciate the bluntness. I may be looking at my issue the wrong way.  
I'm not familiar with constructed attributes but they appear to not 
exist in AD but rather get created on the fly when queried.  This would 
explain why they don't exists when I look for them. As a simple test can 
I query for msDS-PrinciaplName using sambat-tool or another software? I 
only see I can do this using Powershell but it relies on webservcies and 
Samba doesn't support it.
