I migrated from NT 4.0 and my users all show up in Active Directory as display name= last name.  No matter how I reaarange the display name, it still displays as just last name.  How can I get it to display last nem, first name?  I used the adsi edit snap in and any new users I create display correctly, but all my existing users can not be changed.  

thanks.

The tool you need is called ADModify.net.  It will let you make the changes you need and about a thousand more with just a few clicks.  This is the link it can usually be found at:

ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/pss/tools/Exchange%20Support%20Tools/ADModify/

I just tried this site and it isn't letting me on.  Give it a shot and let me know if it works for you.

I found a second link that allowed me to get this file.  Give it a shot:

Great tool.  I used the ADSIedit.msc, but that was nothing compared to this tool.  I was able to get my users all displaying correctly and neatly.  Thanks alot.
