Please don't hijack threads. Change the subject line when changing the subject. The display name is whatever you make it. It is automatically populated the way it is when an account is created; after that it doesn't change unless you change it. So you need to do 2 things: a) change the default display name for new accounts b) change the current display name on all existing accounts For (a) I don't have this on the top of my head, but I get a little googling of "default display name active directory" should find something. For (b) google "admodify.net" and download that tool and use it change the existing accounts.
