Distinguised Name in Active Directory

In my production environment when creating new accounts, the full name defaults to last name, first name. Whereas in my test environment the full name field defaults to first name  last name which is the desirable format. Any reason why such is the case and can it be change through ADSIEdit?  ( I understand that Kerberos does not when there are commas deliniating the first and last name.)

Using Windows Server 2008 R2 -- Domain Functional level windows 2008

Production: cn=last name//, first name,OU=Test,DC=Microsoft,DC=com

Lab environment: cn= first name last name,OU=Test,DC=Microsoft,DC=com

Thanks much!

Thanks much! Do you know of a way or script that would change the format of the Active Directory name from last name, first name to either last name first name (no commas) or first name last name (no commas)

To rename the existing user DNs? Not out of the top of my head, sorry.
That would be rather a question for the PowerShell and/or VB script TAs.

I was familiar with the article. But thanks much!
