We're implementing a wireless network at one of our schools. Joining a
particular wireless ssid produces a captive portal. To authenticate,
the user has to supply their edirectory username/password. Some users
worked, some didn't. Turns out I have a bunch of older user accounts
that don't have the uid attribute filled in. I'm guessing some past
iteration edirectory didn't have that attribute in the schema. Newer
accounts have the uid attribute filled.

We can add it using console one by going to the other tab and adding the
uid. Is there any downside or potential problems by manually filling in
the attribute?

Thanks in advance.
