Changing name using active directory

by social2 In reply to Windows Active Directory ...

You can follow the step by step process below to change the name using active directory
Insert your Windows 2000 Server CD.
Navigate to the \support\tools directory.
Double-click on the file.
Locate the files adsiedit.msc and adsiedit.dll. Extract them to your %systemroot%\system32 directory.
Run regsvr32 adsiedit.dll.
Start Microsoft Management Console (MMC), and then add the ADSI Edit snap-in.
Right-click the top node, and then click Connect to.
Change the Naming Context to "Configuration Container," and then click OK to bind and authenticate.
Expand the Configuration Container node, and then expand the Configuration node.
Expand the cn=DisplaySpecifiers node, and then double-click CN=409.NOTE: 409 is the Locale ID for U.S. English. If you are in a multi-lingual environment, you may need to make changes to the other codes. Most of the Asian codes are already set.
