The tool is simply telling you that this account has a null value for the displayName attribute, and suggesting you use DefaultAccount as the value. You can just accept the suggestion, or simply stamp any value for the displayName using ADUC, PowerShell or whichever tool you prefer for basic AD admin tasks.

Hi @sc2111,

The error column will display "blank" if the displayName attribute of the object isn't defined, so you need to add the displayName of that object or accept DefaultAccount as that value.

To resolve this issue, specify a value for the displayName attribute of the object. To do this, follow these steps from the idFix guide:

In the UPDATE column for the object, type the name of its displayName attribute.
In the ACTION column, click EDIT, and then click Apply.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each object that has a "blank" entry in the ERROR column.
Run IdFix again to look for more object errors.

I thought it was a schema field not related to a specific “user” default objet, thanks for clarifying

Starting the idfix tool i got the following error/warning, can I safely ignore it or is something to investigate/solve before proceeding ?
