User ID in native mode.

By mgonzales ·
We are in the process of upgrading our network from NT4.0 to 2000. We currently use payroll number (i.e. mg1234) for logon name. When we switch to native mode with this pre-2000 logon name be invalid? Will I have to make the username@domainname the same as the pre-2000 logon?

Hi.

"NT4 username" will be the same as "Active Directory, Pre windows 2000 username.

In Active Directory, a user account can have several user names.

1. Windows 2000 username, wich is (default) something@mydomain.com.
Here you can actually add UPN suffixes, so that the user can have domething@notmydomain.com.
2. Pre-WIndows 2000 username wich would be mydomain\something ( mydomain and mydomain.com does not have to be the same, this depends on choices made during AD installation.

One of the benefits with the AD user name, is in enviroments with several domains. The user will not have to select the correct domain from the domain list box, but just type in something@mydomain.com
