Environment

Novell Identity Manager Driver - Lotus Notes

Situation

What is the proper way to issue a rename on a Notes object with the Identity Manager Lotus Notes driver?

Resolution

The Notes driver, by default doesn't normally 'rename' users via the XDS <rename> command, because it expects the renames to happen via Notes AdminP using an XDS <modify> command including a change to the First, Middle, or Last Name. If you disable AdminP for the Notes driver. The driver will fall back to its v1.0 implementation of rename, and simply try to change the 'FullName' field in the Notes database to the <new-name> provided in the XDS <rename> command. This is considered an unsupported process.
