    I have created some users on a MacOSX 10.3.6 server.

    I left the default short name that was created

    eg User name = Testing Newuser -> Shortname = testingnewuser

    however I now need to change this shortname. I cannot do it through
    Workgroup manager as the default shortname is "greyed out".

    Is there a command line way to make this change or do I have to recreate the
    user account

  2. I think in WGM you can add a new shortname. The old one wil still be
    there. If I remember, I'll poke around our server to see if I can figure
    out how to get rid of the original shortname.
