What are the Active Directory Display Names rules?
On a user object, display name is normally the user's first name followed by their last name, but it can be set to any string.
The rules for display names are:
- Local display names must be unique on a workstation.
- Display names must be unique throughout a domain.
- Display names may not exceed 64 characters.
- Display names can contain alphanumeric characters and special characters.
