KB0060 - Procedure for changing LDAP directory name on the G-On server

Description

This is the procedure for changing the LDAP directory name.
We strongly recomend backing up the database before making any changes.

Solution

1. Change the directory name(s) in the config.ini file in the folder "gon_server_management_service\win\plugin_modules\ldap\server_management", e.g. :
replace:
directory name = old_directory_name
with:
directory name = new_directory_name
2. Restart the G/On Management service
3. Open G/On Management. Check that all user names have changed from "user_name(@old_directory_name)" to "user_name(@new_directory_name)"
4. Open "Personal Token Assignment".
5. Go through all rules. For each rule:
a. Right click and choose "Edit"
b. Add the new user corresponding to the old user to the rule, e.g. replace "abc(@old_directory_name)" with "abc(@new_directory_name)"
c. Push "Save" button
6. Open "Action Authorization Policy"
7. Go through each rule containing a user group (not G/On user group). For each rule:
a. Right click and choose "Edit"
b. Add the new group corresponding to the old group to the rule, e.g. replace "mygroup (old_directory_name)" with "mygroup (new_directory_name)"
c. Push "Save" button
8. Open "G/On User group"
9. For each rule repeat step 5 or 7 depending on the rule content.
10. Change the directory name(s) (as described in step 1) in the config.ini file in the folder "gon_server_gateway_service\win\plugin_modules\ldap\server_gateway" for each gateway server
11. Restart the gateway servers.

Additional Information

Note that:
- The "Top 3" menu folder count will be reset for all users.
- Reports will contain entries for the "old_directory_name" users as well as the new ones.
