After users have been registered in IBM
®, you can change their names if their user IDs must change due to a name or location change.
About this task
The name conversion tool or use the AdminP feature should be used for changing user names as needed. To eliminate the need to run name changes in the future, you can migrate older user IDs to a unique directory attribute, which requires you to run the name conversion tool only once. This can be done only for an LDAP directory and only when the names in the directory are already synchronized with Sametime

When you change user or group names in the directory, the change is not reflected in IBM Sametime
Community Server databases. In order to synchronize the directory names with the names in the Sametime
Community Server databases, you must run the name conversion utility.
Changing names with AdminP
This feature allows IBM
Sametime to synchronize name change updates made to the IBM Lotus
® directory via the Domino
Administration Process (AdminP) with updates to Sametime
User Information database (vpuserinfo.nsf).
