Username Display

  Asked By: Kavisha    Date: Aug 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1613

For some reason, the username display for users are not consistent. For some
users, the username is displayed as domain\username and for others, it's First
Name Last Name. One day it will display one way and the next day it will display
the other way. We are pulling the name from AD and the network individual
confirm that the information is all correct in AD. Is this a problem with
SharePoint? And if it is, any recommendations?

Definitely #1 didn't happen.
I'll give #2 a try.

I have a question, for #2, you have to do this one by one? Is there anything
that will migrate all the users?
