Problem: Renaming a GroupWise user in ConsoleOne, in the GroupWise view,
results in the eDirectory user object being left with the old name, not the new one.
This problem occurs for both a full eDirectory user object and a GroupWise external entity.
This is a problem for the customer as they depend heavily on a 2 character name change to know which users to

1. Create a new GroupWise user in ConsoleOne in the GroupWise view, or use an existing user.
2. From the GroupWise view, hilite a GroupWise user and right click and choose , Rename.
3. Let the POA update the change, which is basically a move.
4. You will notice that this user name changes in the GroupWise view but does not
change from the old name, in the eDirectory container.


This has been entered as an enhancement with GroupWise development.  This is currently working as designed.
