However, there are actually less than 50 physical computers, so I'm doing some cleanup.

But, up until now when renaming PC's, I've only renamed them at the workstation through are the updated name also found at the workstation.

To accommodate this scenario we simply use the Before I make any changes to demonstrate this script and the modifications we’ll make to it, let’s first see how my user is currently set in the Site Collection: And as shown in the People Picker: Note the “Name”/”Display Name”, “Work e-mail”/”E-Mail”, and “Title” fields.

Now I’ll change these values in Active Directory (make the “p” in my last name capitalized, change the title, and set the email) and then run the script (I saved the script as Sync-SPUser.ps1): (Note that lowercase “p” is the correct spelling for my name, just in case you were wondering ).

One of my clients recently had an issue where a particularly high profile user (CEO) had their title spelled incorrectly in Active Directory; unfortunately the error wasn’t noticed right away and now, despite changing the information in Active Directory, Share Point was still showing the wrong title in the People Picker when granting the user rights to a Site Collection.

Fortunately I had a partial Power Shell script to fix the issue and just needed to only slightly modify it – you can see the original script on pages 299 and 300 of my book.

The farm grabs the account name and display name from Active Directory, but does not keep this synchronized.
