I need to change the way how users are listed in the Active Directory Users and Computers Tool (ADUC).
Currently the users are shown in the format <firstname> <lastname>.  I need to change this that they aare shown in ADUC in <lastname>, <firstname>.
When I change the name manually and I compare the attributes of a user I can see that the cn name has changed but until now I havn't found a tool or script that allows me to do this operation on a bulk of users.

Be careful using automated scripts.  Hypenated names and names with spaces or international names with certian ansi codes can screw up your AD very quickly.  I perfer LDIF.
