we usually do first initial and last name for usernames but we have an application that requires at least 6 characters for usernames and some people with short last names end up with active directory accounts that are too short. so either we add a character or they have mismatching accounts and get confused.
Is there a way to change it so AD will not accept a username shorter than 6 characters?
