Edit, I have set a Display name propert as a (last name, first name <company
name>). I have used the same format for the "name" attribute at the time of
entering user profiles in the central admin. but when I try to search any user,
People picker is giving 2 kinds of output. For some users, "Display Name"
attribute shows the same above format while for some, it is giving the email id
instead of the above format. I need " Display Name" attribute in the above
I am also giving you the membership provider for your reference.

<membership defaultProvider="adammembership">
<add name="adammembership"
Microsoft.Office.Server, Version=, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=71E9BCE111E9429C" server="server1" port="389" useSSL="false"
userDNAttribute="distinguishedName" userNameAttribute="cn"
userContainer="OU=ADAMTest,O=ADAM,C=US" userObjectClass="user"
userFilter="(ObjectClass=user)" scope="Subtree"
otherRequiredUserAttributes="sn,givenname" />

Anyone can help me out with this?

For those user whose names are not in the format  you expect, what are values for
their cn property, do they match their "display name". I think it is the only
property people  picker can display, based on your configuration.
