Thank you, we have already addressed this issue, if you check back through
the list messages you will see that Scotts question was resolved, you may be
interested in knowing about a little utility called ADModify that enables
you to make bulk changes to AD objects including the Display Name attribute,
ADModify is available from ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/PSS/Tools then go into
the Exchange Support Tools directory and download the contents of the
ADModify directory.

Scotts second post related to the Name attribute in AD, and this cannot be
modified.

Many thanks for your input.

Dear Scott and Mark, 

You can make following change to Active Directory Schema using ADSIEdit

1. Start ADSI Edit
2. Expand Configuration Container
3. Goto CN=DisplaySpecifiers
4. Goto CN=409
5. On the right hand side pane double click CN=user-display
6. Select  in box 'Select a property to view': createDialog
7. In the Edit Attribute box type   %<sn>, %<givenName>
8. Press Set
9. Press Ok
 and now come out of ADSI Edit. give some time for replication and after
that whenever you would create a new user the display name of the user would
be in format  Lastname, Firstname.

The display names of existing users needs to be changed manually.

If this does not address your issues then please let me know.

Thanks.

Regards..Anil

Scott,

I have not had a lot of time to play with this after your email this
morning, but one option is to go into Active Directory Users and Computers >
View > Choose Columns and add the Display Name column, you cannot however
remove or move the Name column so you will have both the Name column and the
Display Name column.

I will keep looking for a better solutions.

This is not something for Exchange but, I need help with it. 
I have our AD Users and computers setup so it shows

John Doe

I would like to make a massive change so it shows Lastname fist. 

IE:  Doe, John

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you,
