Migrating confluence from active directory to other active directory

Our current Confluence installation is connected to an old Active Directory (LDAP). This week our Conlfuence installation will be migrated to a new server and database (this has been well described).

However, during this migration the Active Directory coupled to the Confluence instance will also be replaced with a new Active Directory instance. The usernames will NOT be the same as the  usernames in the old Active Directory instance.

How does this affect the page creators / page updators / page comments? Will the old usernames become "unknown" or is there a special tool which can be run to update these values to the new usernames which come from the new Active Directory.

Can you give an example of an old and a new username?


An example would be : 

original username : pclae

new username: pacl14
