When provisioning AD groups from the PSP the default example shows sAMAccountName being set to the CN.  When the PSP provisions a group it seems to create 2 CNs. One like FolderID:GroupID and another that is just GroupID.


Well AD doesn’t allow colons in sAMAccountName. I found this discussion:


This comment caught my eye:


 At Duke, we work around the colon issue and maintain uniqueness by converting the colons into hyphens and not allowing hyphens in group/folder names in Grouper.”


Is this something I can configure or do I have to dig into the source code to make the fix?
