    We have setup an AD membership provider on a Sitefinity 5.2 install.

    When it is first setup it pulls in information from AD to populate names, emails, start dates, etc. that get displayed in the Forums area by default.

    The question is, how often does Sitefinity refresh from AD, or is there a way to trigger it to do so? For instance, if someone gets married and their last name and/or email changes, will Sitefinity remain out-of-date until they change it within Sitefinity, or will an existing process make sure that the updated AD info gets pulled in at some point?

    The First Name and the Last Name are taken from the user profile withing Siteifnity. So if the AD user does not have a profile, one is created on the fly. In that case if the name of that AD user is changed, the profile information will be the same as before. To update it, you will need to manually delete the Firstname and Lastname and they should be pulled from the AD user again. The email should always be up-to-date.
