In my AD 2003 environment (Exchange 2003) I need help with a script that will update the "Display Name" so that it matches the data contained in the "lastname, firstname" field(s) - Can a script take the existing data and populate/overwrite the current "Display Name" data with the data currently resident in the full name fields?
I can use either ldifde or VBS - or anything else that will successfully apply the update... As does everyone else, I need this ASAP but this is for a major client of mine and I will award max points...  Thanks in advance!!

You can use ADModify utility or a custom vbs script.
