I have SharePoint 2013 Ent. I have successfully configure User Profile Service Application. My User Profile Synchronize Server is also started successfully. I did AD connection with Auto discover domain controller and done full synchronization.

My AD is something like this CROP.XYZCompany.COM. when we login we do something like this XYZ\Username

But whenever I check user profile I am getting CROP\Username why is it so? I need XYZ\Username

I try to delete service and reconfigure but always the same bahavior.

The issue is that your Forest Name and NetBIOS name are different. You have to follow the guide from Spence Harbar: http://www.harbar.net/articles/sp2010ups.aspx . It was written for 2010 but still applies to 2013.

After you create the UPA and before you import profiles you have to set NetBIOSDomainNamesEnabled to true.

$upsa = Get-SPServiceApplication –Id <GUID of User Profile Service Application>
