exchange 2013 ExchangelegacyDN garbled

Hi,

I have installed Exchange 2013 with Server 2012.  I have set the user display as described in this article

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/250455

The distinguished name becomes "/surname.givenname"

The ExchangeLegacyDN is completely garbled but does contain the users information.  I can remember that this was also an issue with Exchange 2010 when it was first released?

Any thoughts?

Does this also not have an impact on the OAB etc?

Ok we will wait for your update on exchange 2010. I tested the same in Exchange 2013 with Windows 2012, but I cannot reproduce it.

Tried to create two other AD accounts and mailboxes, but the dn value is normal without \

So, in Exchange 2010 the DN is correct

but in SP2 update rollup 6, it changes

The LegacyDN is correct after changing the display name in Server 2008 R2 with exchange 2010 sp1.

More investigation will have to be done to understand why the LegacyDN is all random characters with Server 2012 and Exchange 2013.
