what about this? i didn't try it.

Get-ADUser "username" | fl

Use the following command...

Get-ADuser -identity "sAMAccountName" -Properties * | fl

This will display all of the users properties. From there you will be able to find the CN of the Account.

For Exchange use the following command...

Get-User -identity "User Principal Name"  | fl

Hope this helps
Try.. (Replace UserA with your username snd run the command from EMS)
Get-ADUser UserA -Properties CN,CanonicalName | FL CN,CanonicalName
