Is there is a way to make the user names sync as lowercase from eDirectory to Linux. Many people don't use the mixed case or upper case when logging into eDirectory because it is not case sensitive. However, Linux is case sensitive.


If you change the 2 lines in

*[0-9a-zA-Z._-]* )


*[0-9a-z._-]* )

Then it should keep everything in lowercase.

Additional Information

By default the AIX and Solaris scripts lowercase users id's coming from eDirectory.
