I am using Microsoft Windows 2003 Server with Active Directory. When I create a new user say "Clara Leffler" with ID as " cleffler". The active directory assigns DN as "CN=Clara Leffler, CN=Users, DN=DOMAIN, DN=COM".
I wish to use the ID instead for Common Name in the DN as "CN=cleffler, CN=Users, DN=DOMAIN, DN=COM". Could I update some settings in Active Directory to udpate this? Or even better is it possbile to have two DN for same user cleffler?
I also  tried to update the DN value using ADSIEdit, but got error saying object is owned by the System.
