Trying to add user to a group, but domain is changed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    A user has two accounts in different domains, domain1\username and domain2\username. I am trying to add one of them to a SharePoint group (2007) and I write domain1\username. For some reason the domain1\username is changed to domain2\username, both if I click Check User or skip directly to OK. Is there any solution other than deleting the second one?

  • Hi,

    This is not a good practice to have same alias for two users.

    We have faced various issue in our environment because of this.

    I would suggest to use the unique one.


    Thanks, Rahul Rashu
