  • does not populate "User Logon Name"

    Creating user in Win2003 domain with Hyena v6.6 does not populate the field "User Logon Name" only populates the "Pre Windows 2000 Logon Name".
    Is it possible to fix this?

    You'll either have to manually enter this in, or you can use the AD Creation Wizard option.

      Anyone got a script for updating the User Logon Name field?

        The upcoming beta update for Hyena v6.7 will allow you to do this interactively, for multiple users. You should be able to do it as well with v6.6, but in working up the instructions to post here, I found a bug that causes the mechanism to fail for v6.6.

        Once the updated v6.7 beta is available, I'll post the instructions, which should be in a day or two at the most.

          This functionality now works as expected in the beta version of Hyena v6.7. To get the beta, first send a blank email to [email protected]. Then, go to http://www.systemtools.com/hyena/beta.html for information on how to get the beta. You need to be already running Hyena v6.6 for the beta to work.

          To do this, first select a few users in Hyena's right window, select Manage Directory Attributes, and get the attributes that you want to update. If you want to update the "logon" field that is on Hyena's Account tab, its called "userprincipalname". You can view the attributes first on an account that has this field set if you want to verify this.

          When you have multiple objects selected, any attributes that are updated will be modified on all of the objects. Assuming that you want to place the user's samaccountname or some other existing AD attribute into another field, you surround the attribute name with '%' symbols. For example, if you want to set the userprincipalname field to be the value of the samaccountname plus the domain name you would enter:

          %samaccountname%@domainname.com

          You can use any AD attribute name, but the samaccountname is the most useable in this example.

          Remember to test this on a few account first and DO NOT perform this function on any version other than the v6.7 beta, rev 'E'.
