Adding Active Directory login (ca vs. samaccount)

I am having some issues adding user logins to SQL Server. When I
search for users in Active Directory from Security->Logins->New Login,
I can search for and add users using the short name (samaccount, ex
domain\abcde). However, when I search for users using their CA name
(ex. domanin\firstname.lastname), the user is not found.

Is there some setting that needs to be activated in SQL Server to see
the CA name as well as the samaccount name, or is this an issue that
must be resolved on the domain controller.

I would appreciate any insight.

Thanks,

Matt

Hi

SQL Server 2000 only understands "domain\abcde" and not abcde@domain or CA
names.

Sorry, but can't do much about it.

OK, but for some people (like myself) my "long name", say
domain\firstname.lastname (what I believe is our CA name) shows up. My
short name domain\ablastname (what I believe is the samaccount name)
can also be chosen as a login. But for other people, the only thing
that I can access is the domain\cdlastname user name. The
domain\firstname.lastname does not show up when I do a search from SQL
Server.

If it works for me, I figure it should work for others. I just can't
figure out what I need to do so I can add others "long name" (CA).

Thanks again,

Matt
