    Configuring Active Directory to return various name formats

    sumware

      I have a client setting up a new environment. They attempted to set up a new AD that is very similar to old AD, FileMaker Server in each environment can authenticate against their respective AD.

       

      However, when using get (accountname), one AD returns the display name of the user logging in and the other returns the short code.

       

      Maybe that statement is more correct by stating that users can log in with the display name on one environment, but have to log in using the short code on the other.

       

      Does anyone know where this is configured in AD?

       

      Thanks
