Changing display name to userlogon name
before all our mail accounts are created I want to change our old students in an OU 'display name' to their 'logon name' (numbers), currently their display name is their first and second names. Is there an easy way to do automate this change?

- Rep Power
A VBscript targetted at all user accounts in the OU would accomplish this quite easily:
'Bind to the relevant OU
Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://ou=OUNAME,dc=DOMAINNAME")
'Filter the OU contents into an array of users
objOU.Filter = Array("user")
'Read the logon name
For Each objUser In objOU
strDisplayName = objUser.Get("sAMAccountName")
'Set the display name to be the same as the logon name
objUser.Put "displayName", strDisplayName
This was written in haste - please excuse any errors. I suggest testing it on an OU with a single account first.
No warranty is implied or given, etc, etc, etc...
