Description Björn Jacke 2007-01-11 07:52:43 UTC
when a domain user from ldap is being renamed (hyena can do that for examplevery easy) the user's groupmemberships are lost becuase the memberUid attributes of the user's groups are not modified
Comment 1 Björn Jacke 2007-01-11 07:57:18 UTC
on the other hand this should maybe be one of the things the rename user script has to take care of, too.
Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2007-01-17 07:03:54 UTC
I really think this is outside of the scope of Samba.  If you rename 
the Unix account, you are responsible for responsible for renaming 
the entries in the groups as well. So yes, I would agree that this
should be done by the defined "rename user script".
Comment 3 Volker Lendecke 2007-01-17 07:07:54 UTC
Now it's me who re-opens a bug :-).

Jerry, you're right that this belongs to the scripts, but we now have ldapsam:editposix. There we need to fix it.
