So, I don't have a lab to test this, hope someone else does or has done this exact thing.  I'll try to be concise here.

Ex 5.5 Gal - Last Name, First Name                                         Smith, John
Current Win2k3 Domain - First Initial Last name for login           JSmith
                                     Last Name, First Name for Display      Smith, John


Q: As i migrate mailboxes to new E2K3 org, how will the GAL appear?

reason I ask is because standards were changed halfway through.  The DN's for half the account are dn=jsmith etc, while the other half are dn=smith\, john etc.  So inside ADUC, there's no consistency since it displays the account based on the DN format.  I'm trying to decide if a cleanup to make all DN's last,first will adversely affect the users, or the GAL or make life easier in the long run, if i do it now before I connect the ADC.

If you are migrating within the same Exchange org then nothing will change in the GAL.
The display name will be used at all times.
