Best Practice for name changes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings.

    We are using Project Server 2010 currently, and I'm looking for a document/ideas that describes the best practices around name changes.

    Consider that one of the Team Members or PMs got married and last name changed. This trigger a change in AD account, email, display name etc. Typically if this was just SharePoint, I'd use Move-SPUser or STSADM -o migrateuser command and that's just enough...However;

    What's the best practice on this scenario when Project Server is involved? Just using Manage Users or first using Move-SPUser or STSADM -o migrateuser and then using Manage Users and update user details?

    Regards,

    Ali Salih.

  • Are you using AD sync to sync users in PWA?

    Correct. AD Sync is being used.

  • During AD sync

    The following actions can occur during the Enterprise Resource Pool synchronization process

    • A new Project Server enterprise resource and corresponding user account can be created based on an Active Directory account.
    • An active Project Server resource/user account can be deactivated.
    • An existing Project Server user account’s metadata (for example, name, e-mail address, and so on) can be updated if it has changed in Active Directory.
    • A previously inactive Project Server resource/user account can be reactivated.
