    Script to modify Display Names in Win2k3/XP

    Just noticed that when I imported all the users into AD, that the script didn't set their "Display Name" - so the start menu just displays their Username

    Is there a script to set all the Display Names to the cn values?

    DSMOD can change the display name of the user.

    Usage:
    Code:
    dsmod user <User CN> -display <Display name you want>
    I used CSVDE to dump the domain users details into a CSV file which I manipulated in Excel to make the changes I wanted.

    how about
    Code:
    net user jbloggs /fullname:"Joe Bloggs"
    Formatting and extracting distinguished names as per dsmod can be a bit of une chienne.
