Changing First Name and Display name in AD object
Posted on 2009-05-10
I'm running Exchange 2003 SP 2 on Server 2003 SP 2.
I have a user with a mailbox.
I view the properties on that user and try to change their First Name and Display name. The change seems to be saved because next time I view the properties, my changes are still visible.
However, when I view the name in the AD Users container, I still see the original name. Also when sending mail from that user it still comes from the original name, not the one I changed it to.
This is a unique name I am changing it to, no one else has it.
Is it even possible to change the First Name and Display Name for a AD object and have that change visible when they send mail. Or do I need to delete and re-create the AD object over again?
