AD Username Change

We just changed one of our AD usernames. Lets say it was originally JSMI and now it's JSMITH. This is an old account, and it once had to be truncated to fit our systems at the time. Now we're correcting that.

We've renamed it, but have an application that uses IE and passes AD authentication via the browser but it tells me it can't find JSMI. See the snippet below of the error.

Message: Failed to connect. User 'JSMI' does not belong to any group that exists in both ADSI and datasource.

Open in new window


We have confirmed all fields in AD reflect JSMITH. We've even used ADSI Edit to go through the account and everything is JSMITH and no longer JSMI. We don't want to delete the account and start over, but instead we want to find a fix for it.

Thank you!

PLease confirm how many domain controllers you have and have the changes replicateds and has your application refreshed since you made the name changes or does that need disconnecting from the domain and reconnecting to the domain so that it s search look up groups are not using cached credentials and would then be using the new ones?

We are thinking its a cached credentials situation. We have 2 DCs and yet have since replicated.

Can you force the application server to look at the other DC and thus force a refresh

Still having issue; nothing left to do but delete and readd account. Another tech wishes to continue troubleshooting before deleting account. Just closing this out.
