Re: Using an alternate name

What's the difference between an alternate name and an alias?

An alternate name is a fully authenticated name, and an alias is not fully authenticated.

what is alias? I never heard it. I have a customer want to batch process thousands of users alternate name, And the standard step is add alternate name one by one with user's ID files are used. Do you have any idea if there is a tool or a way to batch add alternate names for many users, without involving ID files? There would be some problem if I just changed alternate name field in directory with agent code.
