Domain / User Alias - Is this possible?
Question asked by Mandeep Khalsa - September 6, 2016 at 2:00 PM
I have a domain setup with some 200 users. We want to move some 50 of these existing users to their own respective domain's so that their emails addresses are going to be instead of and in doing so will most likely change the usernames as well.
For example a user is called and after the changes should be called
I understand that we have domain aliases and user aliases but I am not sure if doing that is going to work in this case. If I create 50 such domain aliases ( and point them to can I then turn around and create aliases for the existing users and have them all co-mingle nicely?

If you created the domain with an info user then create a user alias for libertypark on the and set it to point to, it would work.  Make sure that you copy the user data files over to before removing the user.
1. Create domain;
2. Create a info folder in the\users folder;
3. Copy data files over to this newly created folder;
4. Open the userConfig.xml and search for libertypark and replace with info for all applicable occurrences (username, contact info, popup alerts, etc.);
5. Goto System Admin -> Manage -> Restore, select Attach user and enter
6. Press Restore
7. Remove the user
8. Create a user alias libertypark that points to
