The company I work for is running OS X Server 10.6. All of the users were created with a first.last username syntax. This is causing problems and so we are trying to change the usernames to firstlast without deleting and recreating all of the user accounts. I found the following example command:
serveradmin$ ldapmodrdn -U diradmin -Y “cram-md5″ -W -r “uid=first.last,cn=users,dc=my,dc=domain,dc=com” “uid=firstlast”
Here is the result:
Enter LDAP Password: SASL/CRAM-MD5 authentication started SASL username: diradmin SASL SSF: 0 Rename Result: Invalid DN syntax (34) Additional info: invalid DN serveradmin$
Does anyone know of a way to rename my users in a non-destructive way? Can anyone tell me how to solve the Invalid DN syntax problem? Any help is much appreciated.
