AD Lookup Duplicate Name Entry


Although I greatly appreciate all the help from everyone to setup my AD Live Lookup, it still is not completely functional. Whenever I perform a lookup, I recieve the last name twice. For example, if I query myself, (Nick George), the first name field populates “Nick George” and the last name field populates “George”. It looks like this is because the first name field queries the cn value in AD, which includes both the first and last name. It looks like the first name value for the query should be givenName, based on my research. However, I try to edit the lookup file to use this variable instead, but it doesn’t seem to recognize it. Any ideas/suggestions? I am running Windows 2003 AD.
