LAL and a few other labs merged one year ago to form IJCLab. As a result all LAL AD users are in the process of being migrated to a new AD domain (in the same forest), IJCLab. Adding the second AD in the Indico configuration is not a problem but I have a few questions:
Email associated with the user is not the same in the new AD as in the LAL AD. That means that Indico doesn’t detect that the new account should be merged with the existing ones having the same email. Is there a way to do this in the background, preferably by script. Something like select all the
@ijclab.in2p3.frusers, look for existing accounts that may be a preexisting account for the same user, merge them.
Group handling: at some point we’d like to remove the old (LAL) AD from the Indico config, what will be consequence on groups that were provided by this provider. Is it enough to have a group with the same name in the new AD? I guess that no…
Thanks in advance for any hint/suggestion.
