ANyone know where I can go to change a users short or long name?
I tried directory utility and work group manager but it doesn't work
For local users... http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1428
Are these local or network users?
This is for local user accounts right? I need a way to change the name of the server.app users
Well, the ML Server.app shows users in all nodes. At any rate, you can use the dscl command from the terminal...
dscl -u domainadmin /LDAPv3/127.0.0.1 -change /Users/username RealName 'New Real Name'
You will be prompted for your password.
Yes I changed that already. When the user updates there wiki or adds a comment it is still using there old name.....
Ahh, you asked about changing the names, not about the wikis. Have you verified that the change was correctly made? Have you restarted the service?
Verified new real name is. Frank. Turned off and on wiki service numerous times. Still shows up as user z1234567890
Although I can log in as frank
Server app -> Users -> right click user -> choose Advnced Options to change the user's short name.
Under advanced user is already Frank so I added Made Frank his alias too. Stopped and Started Wikis and still the same.... I can log in as frank but it is still z1234567890
There is a rebuild process that happens at some point in terms of the wiki DB. I can't remember off hand how to do it on ML (perhaps wikiadmin). However, you might try restarting the server.
There must be some where else I need to change it... The fact that I can log in with the new user name means I have changed it... I just don't understand why it doesn't completely update.
What can I do with wikiadmin?
For the long name, just go to server.app and double click your user...
If you have a master replica structure set up, make the changes to the master.
master replica? The users name is Frank in every place suggested but still giving me z1234567890 once logged in
