After running the Upgrade Tool Samba shares are not accessible if the long user name is provided (e.g. user@nethserver.org)

Steps to reproduce

- Install ns6 and configure ibays in PDC mode
- Run the Upgrade Tool

Expected results

The ibays are still accessible with long user name

Actual results

Login with long user name fails

Additional information

The userPrincipalName attribute is missing in the AD LDAP.

[root@vm3 ~]# net ads -P search cn=admin userprincipalname
Got 1 replies

Entry found, but no attribute.

Workaround: run the action /etc/e-smith/events/actions/nethserver-dc-sync-upn

Thanks to Federico Ballarini

The fix could be added to the action nethserver-directory-ns6upgrade. A similar issue is raised also with the backup/restore or rsync upgrade methods.
