Active Directory member of display

in our Active Directory Environment we use user logon name as numbers ex: 123456
and the display name is first name and last name.

but when I add a user to a group, I would like the user to show up as 123456 in the member of, under the Name column.

how can I do this ?

Thanks

By design Windows shows by display name not username.

Although a quick search on Technet suggests you may be able to get what you're after: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/de1759f7-ac8d-4cb8-b30f-4e2d60d95021/dsget-group-does-not-display-member-name-but-id

As always be sure to have a full system state backup of your servers before tinkering around.

Best of luck!
