I haven't seen my exact question:


Are both in Tomcat derby DB. The users are now going to WAS and LDAP and they are (jdoe/jdoe1 in LDAP).
Will this work or do I have to remove their IDs before hand?

Hi Sterling,

please have a look here:

If your user ID's in LDAP match the user ID's in Tomcat you can just switch to LDAP.
In a nutshell, you have to make sure that the user ID's match (case sensitive or insensitive), otherwise you get new users or the login fails.
If you need to you can disable case sensitivity. There is a way to change the user ID's manually before switching to LDAP.
