I am an absolute beginner when it comes to Sharepoint and I am current facing an odd issue right now where one of our AD security group's displayname field is showing up as DOMAIN/accountname :
The group is set up exactly the same as the others and are all within the same OU. The group has also been added weeks ago and our user profile import runs daily.
I've tried to run this on our SP server and it appeared to have resolved the issue :
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load(“Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=184.108.40.206, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c”)
$site = New-Object -TypeName Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite -ArgumentList http://portal/sites/mysite/default.aspx $group = $site.RootWeb.SiteUsers["NTADMIN\acg-bfs bb adg operations"] $group.Name = "ACG-BFS BB ADG Operations" $group.Update()
However it seems like I'm the only one (admin account) who can see the updated displayname - all other users are still seeing the DOMAIN/accountname. The above method also appears to be tedious as it will have to be run on all site collections.
Can anyone please point me to the right direction?
