Hello again. When setting up ownCloud with LDAP users I am getting two weird things happening. To explain these I will use an example username “guest.name” and full name Guest User.
- When the LDAP users are added to ownCloud, two new users are created, one correct one with the same LDAP username and full name. The second has a username in the form _xxxx and the full name being the same as the username (so “guest.name” = full name).
- Each LDAP user with the correct username and full name also has their own group named after their username (so guest.name with full name “Guest User” belongs to a group called “guest.name”). I can’t delete these groups (ownCloud recreates them instantly), not even the one autocreated for the admin_xxxx account (I deleted the default ownCloud one using the instructions given in the Nethserver documentation).
Can someone summarize what is going on here? Also, which user (the one with proper username and full name or the one with _xxxx and username as full name) should I be added to groups/sharing stuff with?
Thanks for bearing with me.
