  • Hi Mahaka,

    Click on the arrow besides Welcome domain name \ user name and then click on My Settings

    You will get following options Account , Name, etc.

    Check Name option , if it will shoe you Domain name \ user name then you have to change the display name in user's AD artibutes because this information is directly fetched from AD via SSP.

    You can also check SSP user profiles and properties
