i have changed the display information of a couple of users that preferred to have their middle names taken out of AD, in the user profile i have changed the display name but the names in AD still remain the same, and the same in the address book and i dont know why.

Can I force some sort of update or am I going about changing this info in the wrong manner, I would have thought the information would update the name.

Everything else works, if i change phone numbers etc but not the name and it doesnt in the address book either.

Im using Microsoft Windows 2003 server, exchange 2003, and we have a global domain.

I dont really want to delete the user and re-create it as I was told to do on another site, so is there a way i can do this?
