Active Directory name changes
Posted on 2013-06-04
I have a user that had a name change and I have gotten everything changed except the actual network account. For examle, she had been mjones on my domain. Now she is msmith. I thought it should be as easy and going into her mjones properties and just changing her name. NOT A GOOD IDEA. So I created a msmith user account. Now when doing things, there are times that her old and new account seem to have "blended". I dont know how to explain it. For example. She logs in as msmith But when going to My computer, her home drive says mjones
I don't want to make matters worse so what would have been my proper way to keep her profile and settings and get her name changed. Should I have used the copy function in active directory and created it that way?
