rename users w/o scripts for ldapsam:editposix=yes

This does not handle changes in group membership though.

Ack, looks correct.
Thanks for catching this one.

Looks correct. Just one little stylistic remark: We have the routine talloc_autofree_ldapmsg which might help here.

I think the handling of group memberships really should be added before. Hyena allows renaming of user accounts and if group memberships are lost this is a bad thing.

It's even a security risk if later on a new account is created who has the same name as the old (renamed) account and if the group memberships are not checked by the account creation tool. The new user then has the old group memberships of the other renamed user.

Simo agreed on patch.
Comment 7 Karolin Seeger 2009-06-30 04:38:35 UTC
What about this one?
Should we pick that for 3.4.0?

Gregor is working on a fix that includes the group membership handling.
