How to modify CN Name to reflect data in the Display Name?

Nov 9, 2007 at 5:23 PM
I am trying to modify the CN value for all of the user objects but unfortunately there is no data in the First or Last name fields. Is there a variable that can be set allowing me to change the current CN value to what is in the Display Name field? Maybe it would be easier to populate the First and Last Name fields with data parsed out of the Display Name field which happens to be "Last, First" for each user. This is as a result of an in-place upgrade and AD did not seed the fields correctly from NT 4. Could admodify help or should i be looking at another set of tools like dsquery/modify?

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Just enter 'displayName' as the value and it should work.
