Best Practices When Administering Accounts

  • Use the Description field to make administrative notes and reminders relative to the management of directory objects.

  • Use Last, First format for the Display Name field. By conforming to this standard, you will be able to more easily locate users who may prefer nicknames as their first name (for example, Robert versus Bob).

  • Consider automating data feeds from other systems to keep data in the Active Directory up-to-date. For example, many corporate telephony departments maintain accurate electronic lists of employee telephone numbers, which can be integrated into appropriate Active Directory fields. Another idea: Find out if your Human Resource department can supply updates to the organizational reporting structure. This information could be used to update the Manager and Direct Reports fields in Active Directory. There are endless possibilities here. In any event, make sure the data provided is relevant and kept up-to-date.
