    This forum is for pre-SP 2010 SharePoint questions (so far so good) but it is for questions about accessibility for the physically challenged (not so good).

    I'm moving the post to the (pre SharePoint 2010) Search forum.

    (You don't have to do anything, by the time you see this reply the thread will already be there.)

  • Hi All Great SharePoint folks,

    Can someone help me with my question?

    In case I haven't done a good job in explaning the question, here is mroe detail.


    We currently have two version of sharepoint 2003 and 2007. search is working fine for 2003 but it is not working well for 2007.

    2003 is showing up first name & last name when we log on to the site while 2007 is showing up domain user ID domain name\lastnamef( last name first initial of the first name) or by first name & last name.


    when search for the person on 2007 it is showing the result for some users but not all. Some users we have to search by first name and last name while others with domain name.

    Do I need to do anything on the server end to fix this or something on the user profile end?

    If there is any older post or blog for this issue, please forward me the info

    Really appreciate all your help
