Run the Name Change task to ensure that the user and group names that are stored in the vpuserinfo.nsf database on the Sametime server are converted from the native Domino directory name format to an LDAP directory format.
About this task
Running the name conversion utility updates Sametime
® Community Server user or group names with the latest directory changes. The name conversion utility uses a comma-separated value list that you compile to change names, delete names, or convert all names from Domino
® to Domino
LDAP formatted names.
Users create a contact list, a privacy list, and an alert-me-when list in the IBM
Connect client by selecting user names or group names from the Domino
LDAP directory that is used with the IBM Sametime
Community server. These contact, privacy, alert-me-when lists are stored in the user information database (vpuserinfo.nsf) on Sametime
Community servers. When a user starts the Sametime
Connect client, the lists are downloaded from the database to update the lists stored on the client's local computer.
You do not need to run the name conversion utility when you add new users or groups to the Domino
or LDAP directory.
Run the name conversion utility manually on a stand-alone Sametime
Community server, or on a server in a cluster which will replicate the change throughout the cluster.
Be sure to stop the Domino
server before you run the name conversion utility.
The name conversion utility accepts the following name changes:
