    Default Issues migrating from exchange

    Hi All,
    We are currently moving from exchange 2007 over to Zimbra. Its all working fine so far apart from a few issues.

    I'm migrating users using the ZimbraMigration.exe tool, which is working great, but the new user in zimbra is missing some information.
    When it's created, there is nothing in First Name, the account name and last name is the AD username. I have to go in and add the users First and last names, and change the account name to be the primary e-mail address.

    I've managed to script the changes for first and last names, but I can't seem to find a zmprov command for changing the account name.

    I've got around 400 users to migrate and would love not to have to go into every user and change the account name.

    Any help would be brilliant.

    Code:
    zmprov help commands | grep rename
    
      renameAccount(ra) {name@domain|id} {newName@domain}

    Thank you very much for that... searching the manual and the hundreds of commands, just must have missed this one.

    You mean renaming an account? Yes, it is that simple but you need to be the administrator to run that command.
