Naming Convention Suggestions
Hi folks, I've got my Zimra up and running now, all is well. To streamline my user creation and simply everyone's world, I am planning to add Active Directory (AD) external authentication using my Windows Server 2000 PDC simple a user/pass combo. I tested and AD authentication works on my test subdomain perfectly.
With 200-250 users rotating out frequently due to high turnover sometimes, I have run in to a lot of duplicate names. Previously setup, the company uses the 3 initials as the AD login (Alfred Blake Chapman = abc) and first name with last initial for email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I've been thinking of instead moving both AD and email user names to a simple firstname.lastname structure. I should end up with less duplicates that way. I seem to have a lot of jenniferm's for example.
Any ideas or opinions?
