I have scripted NTName2DspNm.bat to convert a user's logon name (sAMAccountName) into their Display Name (displayName).

The syntax for using NTName2DspNm.bat is:

\[Call\] NTName2DspNm NTName NetBIOSDomain DispNm


                              NTName        is the user's logon name, like Jerry.                              NetBIOSDomain is the NetBIOS domain name, like JSIINC                              DispNm        is a call directed environment variable that will contain the user's displayName.

If you wanted to return the current logged on user's Display Name:

call NTName2DspNm %UserName% %USERDOMAIN% DispNm
@echo %DispNm%

NTName2DspNm.bat contains:

                              @echo off                              if \{%3\}==\{\} @echo Syntax: NTName2DspNm NTName NetBIOSDomain DisplayName&goto :EOF                              setlocal                              set NTName=%2\%1                              set NTName="%NTName:"=%"                              if exist "%TEMP%\NTName2DspNm.VBS" goto getDspNm                              @echo.Dim objArguments>"%TEMP%\NTName2DspNm.VBS"                              @echo.Set objArguments = Wscript.Arguments>>"%TEMP%\NTName2DspNm.VBS"                              @echo.Set objTrans = CreateObject("NameTranslate")>>"%TEMP%\NTName2DspNm.VBS"                              @echo.objTrans.Init "3", "">>"%TEMP%\NTName2DspNm.VBS"                              @echo.objTrans.Set "3", objArguments(0)>>"%TEMP%\NTName2DspNm.VBS"                              @echo.Wscript.Echo objTrans.Get("4")>>"%TEMP%\NTName2DspNm.VBS"                              :getDspNm                              set DspNm="NOTFOUND"                              for /f "Tokens=*" %%d in ('cscript //nologo "%TEMP%\NTName2DspNm.VBS" %NTName%') do (                               set DspNm="%%d"                              )                              endlocal&set %3=%DspNm%
