2) Run the ./unisetvar AUTHENTICATION_MODE I command to remove LDAP integration.

3) Restart UVMS for the change to work.

  1. For UVMS version 6.x :
                        1-  Go into each existing ID via the UniViewer console and  change from LDAP to Internal account

                        3- Assign the Group/Role as required.
