Active Directory cn field not updated from sap HR using ldap.

Apologies if this is in the wrong forum area.

I am using the LDAP facility to create and modify Active Directory records from sap HR. Initially, the name field cn that was coming across into AD was in the format of the logical system and employee number, eg, RD4CLNT22000000711.

I then implemented the BADI HRLDAP_ATTRIBUTES which then changed this name field cn in the active directory listing to the format; surname, forename.

It works fine when I create a new user, however the problem comes when I update the persons name in the sap hr module. The data that comes across into Active Directory shows the change to the persons surname sn, forename and displayname fields is there but the cn field is still showing as the previous name.

In short, when a new user is created, the cn field in active directory is correct

(surname, forename) but when the employee’s name is modified, that change is not brought across to the cn field even though the surname, forename and displayname fields are updated correctlyon AD.

We are on release 4.70.

Anyway, if anyone could help I would be very grateful.
