SharePoint 2010 people search gives "Domain\AccountID" instead of Display name of the user!
SharePoint uses "Preferred Name" property which is mapped with "Display Name" property from AD in People search results. Here, I found the root cause of the problem as: User profile not in sync!
Steps to resolve:
- Make sure in AD, display name field is set properly
- Go to SharePoint central Administration >> Do a full profile import.
- Once you run full profile import, You should see the display name field updated in user profiles.
- Run SharePoint search incremental crawl once for the search results to get updated.
