  • Active Directory

    In your Active Directory domain, you have 3000 users. Their display name is listed in the format 'Firstname Lastname'. Your organization wants to change the format to 'Lastname, Firstname'. How would you go about implementing this change for all 3000 users?
    thanks

    This sounds like a homework question

      This looks like an exam question is this something you ar elooking to do or do you need a general answer?

      With ADSIedit, i know you can change the default for new users created so the display name is "Lastname , Firstname" instead if "Firstname, Last name"

      But to change 3000 existing users you would need some sore of ADSI script.

      Well im pretty sure anyway.
