save_object

Use the save_object command to save the currently selected Active Directory object stored in memory to Active Directory. You must save the Active Directory object for any changes you make using ADEdit to take effect in Active Directory. If you select another Active Directory object or end the ADEdit session before saving the currently selected object, your changes will be lost.

If an object has invalid attributes or values or is the wrong class for the container where it’s being saved, Active Directory will report an error and the object will not be saved.
