Make sure the certifying server is selected and the same as the administration server of your Domino domain.

I can see the names are updated in all server and I can see their names in names.nsf. I did server restart many times still the same problem and also I have selected the correct certifier and admin server. We upgraded the server from the old verion 8.0.1 to new verion 8.5.3

Run updall -r on names.nsf

Then ,,,

Run tell adminp p all on the domino console ....
