Changed user "login" name on SBS2011 and now cannot login.

We changed only the "login" name and now cannot login for that user.  Is there more I have to do? Does it take time for the change to take place?

Also, this user is not showing up in the sbs console...just under AD.

Are there multiple DC in the network if yes then force the replication and check.I will also recommend to modify the "login" name from SBS console and see how does it work.

You also need to check the user home drive,logon script,user profile path if applicable you need to take care of the same. http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/7a88eb2c-a61f-43b8-8060-006fff7850c4/changing-a-username-after-a-marriage?forum=winserverDS

I went back in and changed the pre2000 login name also and it started to work.

However, the user can not login to the Outlook web access, Do I have to make another change ?
