I recently changed a user's name, primary short name and home dir
in workgroup mgr via the inspector. I added her old shortname to
the list of shortnames as well..
I chowned her home directory to her new short name and she is able
to log in and see her desktop/files without incident...
We she logs-in via mail.app or webmail, all of her messages and
IMAP folders are gone. Mail to either of the shortnames is
appearing in her (new) mailbox, and when I look at the mailstore
all of the new mail is contained within the directory named the
same as her new shortname. Of course a folder by the name of her
old shortname is still there - with all of her messages from the
prior to the rename...
A quick read of the cyrus wiki yielded the RENAME command - which
looks like it may be the answer...
Has anyone done this before? Is this the answer?
Yes, but not now that you've already created the hierarchy for the
ie you had the mailbox context:
and have now created
and you're wanting to pull all of 'shortname' into 'newname'. I
wouldn't just do this via the filesystem and then reconstruct as you
may have some conflicting message file names and thus won't have a
proper union of the two hierarchies.
I would instead add an ACL that allows 'newname' to have full rights
over all of 'user/shortname', and then use your IMAP client to drag
messages from the old mailbox location into the new one. This should
preserve all the read/seen/etc flags.
If you're comfortable with cyradmin, you can set the ACL perfectly
well from the command line, otherwise you could use SirAdmin to do it
via a GUI.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
