Changing the SamAccountName Format

Default Value (0):

  • This will use the text supplied in the username before the @ symbol. It will strip any invalid characters and if there is already a sAMAccountName then it will start appending numbers until it finds one available.
  • Cons: Using this setting could prevent you from creating objects with usernames that begin with words like “info” or “service” due to those sAMAccountNames being reserved words in Active Directory. At this time CloudPanel does not check against reserved words.

Unique Value (1):

  • CloudPanel will generate a unique sAMAccountName using both the text before the @ symbol in the username and the domain name. If the domain is changed for the user the sAMAccountName will not be modified.
  • CloudPanel will trim the generated sAMAccountName to under 19 characters
