We changed the exisiting user's "login name" and changed nothing else. I did this in AD under "account" .

The user can not login.  I suspect is has not gone "live" yet. How can I get the server to recognize the new login name immediately.

Also this user is not in the sbs console. I would like to add the user to the sbs console.

Thank you

Ok one more thing. This user is getting a new computer. Part of the reason for the change. So the user's original computer is turned off and I am trying to login on the "new" PC with the new login name.    

We discovered that the user was logged in on a different PC with the old user name.  Also found her old pc still logged in (young tech mistake - was sent to check). We think this caused a delay in the new user name taking effect. It is now working once we had her logged out........took about 20 minutes.

Thank you to everyone.
