Steps to reproduce
1.Move Active Directory OU (containing the User account for owncloud) to a new OU
2.Change the pointer to the new location
3.usernames are now "A363A5EC-FBDB-40D5-BF7D-5812851BC2AF"
that user names should be as they appear in AD
As above. But again... I think I broke it

Where did you install ownCloud from:

I hope most of that was useful.
I did Google this a bit before posting here. I noted that this was an issue back in the 5.x.x days, and many people suggested to change the "Internal Username Attribute" but since this was working just fine until I broke it... I don't want to make any more changes.
Worse yet, I was just starting to use the desktop client and when it could not log in, it created a new account and duplicated all of my files, and since the accounts are referencing AD, there does not appear to be a way to 'delete' them.
So since I am not in production yet, and still testing... I have some suggestions (just don't know how) to fix this:
1. Delete the accounts on the server, recreated the LDAP User Authentication for fresh accounts
2. Fix the user names and deleted the second accounts (have already backed up my data on a different source)
3. Rebuild the whole thing from scratch <---not my first pick
Oh, and before you ask, no I am not an advanced linux/debian user, so I was still trying to figure out how to get backups working ... So I don have one yet
Hope I have provided enough information so that I can get this fixed. Thanks for any help in advance!
