Rename user in AD caused problems

All,

We have a long time user for whom our corporate IT renamed his username in AD.

Now a couple of things for that user are broken:

* The ProductView worker no longer creates reps when he checks-in an object - Here's what's logged in publish job details:

o May 10, 2012 6:03:42 AM:Number of Files (identified to be) Transferred: 0

o May 10, 2012 6:03:43 AM:No content to process

* He can no longer promote - He gets a notification containing this error:

o wt.org.UserNotFoundException: null user

His workspaces were fine through the rename.
All his other permissions are fine also.

When his username was renamed the Windchill name remained the same and his new name was put into the Alternate User Name 1 field.

Any ideas? It seems to be a similar problem to the one reported by Brian in this recent thread "Name Change with AD".

So far no help from tech support even though they've had the case for 6 weeks now.

Thanks,

Mike Foster

RE: Rename user in AD caused problems

We worked out a procedure for changing a contract employee to a permanent employee below. You may be able to reassociate the account using step 2 below since you are using the same account but only renaming it.
