In both the Global Catalog and Global Address Lists, we would like to list by Last Name First, First Name Second.  I did some surfing and found a way to do it using ADSI Edit, but this will require me to delete all the existing e-mail accounts and recreate them.  Is there another way to make this change without having to recreate any part of the user accounts?

The only way to do this for existing users is:  You have to edit the display name for each account and type it any way you want.  

For new users you can follow this :

Try ADModify. It should allow you to do it for existing users.

Thank you, I looked through this and it looks good.  I am a little hesitant to perform this now that we are a live environment.  I take a closer look at this after things have settled down.
