I run an owncloud setup for multiple research labs at university. For account credentials, we use the university LDAP server. However, I now need to grant access to files that are in accounts that the university expired off their LDAP server. Is there a way to convert an account that originated in LDAP to a local account and/or relocate their data to an account their research advisor can access? I have no access to the LDAP servers, but I do have root on the owncloud server. There is no encryption enabled, and the server is running 8.2.7.
Has anyone had any similar experiences, or am I effectively out of luck with the data on the drives but no way to meaningfully access it?
