accounts to external domain user accounts. You must first create new user
accounts in the external domain.
- Use this page to convert an existing external domain
user account to an internal domain user account. After the conversion, the
external domain user account still resides on the LDAP server. To purge
the external account, the LDAP administrator must manually delete the
account from the LDAP server.
- When you set up external accounts, be aware of how
DocuShare matches internal and external accounts during multiple user
DocuShare to LDAP account conversion. The value of a matching property in
both the DocuShare and the LDAP accounts must be a unique value for a
conversion to work correctly. If the matching values are not unique, then
when you convert accounts you may inadvertently convert the wrong account.
Convert matching properties are determined by those properties that were
bound on the Bind User page.
