Why is "last name" not getting updated?


P

NETters,

On our Windows 2003 Active directory, when a user account was created,
we did not specify the "Last Name" for the user account. When you look
in Active Directory Users and Computers, the name shows up as just the
first name of the user. Now, I modified the account and added last name
and updated "Display name" property. Still, the name shows up as only
the first name. All other accounts display it as "FirstName LastName."
Why is this account not displaying it right?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Because ADU&C does *NOT* display the firstname, lastname or
displayname - it uses the user's CN to show the user account.

Marc,

Thank you for your help.

Where in AD can I change this entry for the user? I am familiar with
adsiedit.msc.

Appreciate your help.
