Different user IDs in LDAP and R/3


EP EP 6.0 SP20

We have configured Single sign on from protal to R/3. Works great... Then we started out to use LDAP for Portal user maangement. PErformed the configuration in portal and this works fine as well.

My main issue is that the LDAP user ID and the R/3 user ID are not the same and hence we would not be able to perform Single sign on.

For example the LDAP user ID name of an employee is "peterc" where as the LDAP user id name of that employee is "peter.cuddihy". Hence the single sign on does not work. We want to use LDAP as the user database as we also intend to cnfigure SPNego for windows based authentication.

Is ther any way that I can create the portal user id to be "peter.cuddihy" and map this user to "peterc".

NOTE : We do not want to use the User mapping functionality. IT is too to do the user mapping for the the number of users we have and also the security invloved in this method.

Any help
