Change Fullname

  • Hello,

    How can I change the fullname of a user? I tried the following (in an older zarafa installation). Need to change “k” to “c”

    zarafa-admin -l |grep -i affa
            maaf                    Markus Affa
    zarafa-admin -u 'maaf' -f 'Marcus Affa'
    Unable to update user information, object not found
    Using the -v option (possibly multiple times) may give more hints.

    Seems to be a bug in zarafa 7,2,6,10. Any chance to get this updated?


  • Kopano

    Hi @klausf ,

    just did a quick test with Kopano 8.4.6 and here the issue does not exist. My general recommendation would be to upgrade to Kopano.

  • Hello Felix,

    thanks for your reply! I tested with Kopano too and there it works as expected. I know that upgrading to Kopano would be the best, but this is not possible at this time. Can I change the fullname in the database directly?

    Regards Klaus

  • Hi Klaus,

    Are you sure you are not using the ldap plugin for the users ?

    Ldap users are not permutable from Zarafa.



  • Hi Mark,

    you are my man! You are right, I’m using the unix plugin in this installation. So I only have to change the /etc/passwd .

    Thanks again!

  • Hi Klaus,

    Glad to hear you fixed your issue.

    Kind regards,
