Display name active directory not updating

Rated 3.86/5 based on 937 customer reviews

The Workplace AD Sync Component lets you sync selected groups and organization units from Active Directory to Workplace, eliminating the need for manual user administration when people join and depart your enterprise.

I hope this helps, if you have any further questions please just ask.

If you work in the kind of large institution that I do and are using Microsoft Active Directory then the chances are that at certain times you will need to perform actions on the directory that are outside the scope of the MSAD tools.

This could be things like specialised queries, bulk account creation or mass updates of user information.

To update most attributes with AD Bulk Users you simply add the s AMAccount Name (username of the user to be updated) followed by a Modify column with the value set to TRUE (as we are updating a user not creating a new one) followed by the attributes that you want to update.

To update a users name that you see in Active Directory Users and Computers you need to update the ‘cn’ attribute.
