sorry the account with the old name and
note of why you are changing the username. To run
sorry you need
to be a root user. Follow the prompts of the script.
sudo sorry username_to_rename note -u username_to_rename
Then manually create an
calnetUID manually, and delete
callinkOID attribute. You will need
to be a root user to do this. Be sure to

When the user uses certain OCF webpage (e.g. password reset) that uses
