Which attribute exactly? Both name and sAMAccountName are perfectly fine with spaces. Maybe some custom filtering rule? Best thing to do is open MIISClient, go to the Metaverse Search tab, find the group in question and check its properties. On the Connectors tab it will show you it it was filtered and which rule is responsible.

Then it's most definitely some of the inbound sync rules. You should check all such rules that apply to group objects:

Get-ADSyncRule | ? {$_.SourceObjectType -eq "Group" -and $_.Direction -eq "Inbound"} | ft Name,Identifier

Open in new window

For each of those, review the scoping filters and transform rules.

On the PC where the sync client is installed. The cmdlet requires the ADSync module though, which is available with AADSync/AADConnect. Are you using one of these, or the good old dirsync?
