TMG User uses email address as username. How do you convert the @ symbol to an underscore (or similar) to use with Active Directory
Tuesday, May 01, 2012 1:36 AM
I need to find a solution where, email@example.com registers as an external client to use the portal, When he is registered, in AD Joe will have the username jowblow_gmail.com
when he access’s the portal, it will be forced through to TMG, In the TMG logon, joe will enter firstname.lastname@example.org & password. When he presses submit, the form will turn email@example.com to joeblow_gmail.com and authenticate to AD.
Would anyone please have an idea on how to do this? My developers are struggling to find a way?

You can add custom UPNs to your Active Directory and then assign a user account with a custom UPN value.
E.g. you can add a custom UPN to AD of .gmail.com and then assign a custom UPN of firstname.lastname@example.org to your active directory user who is called contoso\joeblow.
TMG supports the use of login using native or custom UPNs and I have a customer using this approach...
