To run a name change task, start the name conversion utility. The name conversion utility uses the CSV file to update user contact and privacy lists with the latest directory changes.
Before you begin
Before you begin, create a comma-separated value file with name changes, and then create a name change task. IBM
® recommends running the name conversion utility at off-peak hours, and stopping the Domino
® server before you begin.
About this task
Starting the name conversion utility starts the name change task. You can create many tasks, but the name change conversion utility executes only one task at a time. You can have only one name change task scheduled or in progress. If a name change task is scheduled or in progress, you cannot create another name change task until the existing name change task completes.
It is not necessary to run the name change conversion utility on every IBM Sametime
® Community Server in a cluster. For clusters, the task should run once on one server and then replicate to other servers in the cluster.

Name Change task replication
When you create a name change task, the task is saved in a file called stnamechange.nsf, and this file is replicated to all home IBM
Sametime Community Servers so that updates can be made to each server's vpuserinfo.nsf database. The file vpuserinfo.nsf is the Sametime user information database that contains contact lists and privacy lists.
