It seems that we're having a problem with renaming users.
When our administrators rename a user our AD reflects the changes as expected, but the name in the Exchange Global Address List isn't updated.

Do I need to add something in Adaxes to make it work?

Adaxes 2012.1
Active Directory in 2003 mode, forest mode 2000
Exchange 2007 SP3

Hello Troels,

How did you rename those users? The thing is that Exchange uses the Display Name property of a user for the Global Address List.

When renaming a user in Adaxes (both in Adaxes Administration Console and in Adaxes Web Interface), you will be prompted for the new Full Name of the user, as well as his/her First Name, Last Name, Display Name and User Logon Name. If you change the user's Full Name only, by default, the new Display Name will not be generated correctly.

I suggest that you also update the First Name and the Last Name properties, and the new Display Name will be generated correctly by the built-in User Property Pattern. Or, alternatively, you can just update only the Display Name and Full Name properties.
