  • Groups - Pre-W2k Name

    Hi,

    Our admins have been using Hyena to rename groups. When I look at the Detailed view in Hyena I'm noticing the Directory Name for the group has been changed to the new name but the Pre-W2K Name still has the old name. I believe that this is causing issues in our environment. Is there a way to change the Pre-W2K Name with Hyena or ADUC or do I need to write a script to access this attribute?

    Thanks.

    If you double-click on a group you can see and modify the Pre-Windows 2000 name.

      Yep, I had this problem when renaming global groups. For instance kixtart reads the pre 2K name. Or at least the version of Kix we were running did. Simply right click the global group and select properties. Then change the pre 2K.

        Thanks, I don't know how I missed that. I guess it's Monday.

          Is there a problem doing the rename in Hyena or would I hit the same issue doing it in ADUC?
          Thanks.

            No, Hyena simple uses the same conduits that the dsa.msc snapin uses. It's just better at job then dsa.msc.

              ADUC will prompt you witha dialog box showing the Group name and the Group name (pre-Windows 2000). Hyena does not do this. So in this case I am steering our admins away from Hyena and encouraging them to use the ADUC snapin.

                I'll see about adding a new field for the Pre-2K field when renaming a group.

                          Our current beta of Hyena v6.6 includes this new field. The beta is now active.
