We have an active directory user that just had her username renamed.
When the user is running an application that calls our CurrentUser web
service method (which returns the value of
HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name), her old username is returned.
DOMAIN\oldusername instead of DOMAIN\newusername. The user is logged in with
this new username and when we make a windows client .NET call to
System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent.Name it returns the
correct username "DOMAIN\newusername".
This has stumped the developers and our network admins. Can anyone point us
in the right direction or do we have to call Microsoft? It has not resolved
itself in 4 days now.
Hopefully someone will be so kind to share some information if they have it.
