How to reclaim my old user?

Yes, I am me. But I am also me: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/user/v1/viewprofilepage/user-id/1103247

 

Does anyone know how to recover the login credentials for an old user?

Re: How to reclaim my old user?

Do you have any idea about the old HP Passport ID or mail?

You may want to look at this pre-migration topic to see if it helps:

You may have to ask a moderator to see if they can help.

Re: How to reclaim my old user?

AHHH!! What happened?

 

I lost my identity as my legacy user, and now I am back as a new user with only this one message topic!

 

Is this because I changed my email address in my profile?

 

This is horrible!

Re: How to reclaim my old user?

Hi Moderators and Admins....

 

Please help me as well....

inventsekar_1

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/1041938

 

it was me, at 2005, during my first job with HP i had that profile. i was an active member, you can see 508 posts and 82 kudos...good, isnt...(if you need any proof, you can check that users posts and you will see only HPUX and HPOV posts)

 

My present id is sekar sundaram

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/608691

i am active with this profile from 2008 (i think i left HP at that time only and my previous id inventsekar_1 had the email my hp.com email id, i think that is why i registered a new user)

 

if you please merge these two profiles, it will be very helpful for a "7year old" member of the great ITRC

I don't think it is possible to merge profiles.

by merge, i meant, the old inventsekar profile's number of posts and kudoes should be added to my present sekar sundaram profile.

i thought that is what happened in this request from this user...

Yes, that's what "merge" means to me too but it isn't available.

The only "merge" that was done was between the BCS and ITRC forums, if you set things up properly.

 

>I thought that is what happened in this request from this user.

 

No, this user didn't want the new IDs, just to use the old.  The two new ones had 8 + 2 posts.

The old had 448.

And I'm not sure if James solved it by himself?

Re: How to reclaim my old user?

Dennis is correct. The only time when it is possible to merge two accounts on our platform is during a migration. And as the pre-migration posts on the ITRC stated, the accounts to be merged had to have the same email address. The migration engine compared all of the email addresses and merged those accounts sharing identical addresses. This took care of people who had, for example, lost their credentials and could not recover them for one reason or another. Once the migrations were completed, we do not have the ability to merge accounts. 

 

In the case where a member has two accounts and can access both (i.e., they are tied to different HP Passport accounts), it's best to simply choose one and use it, and let the other one rest. Since we can't merge them, there is little else we can do. If on the other hand, only one account is available (tied to a Passport  account), it is possible to transfer the association with the Passport account to the currently unavailable Community account. This is something Kevin_Paul or I have to do, and we have done this for a significant number of members.

Re: How to reclaim my old user?

Talk about a mess!!

 

The board has changed since my last visit on 2/15/13 @1:39pm. 

1st I couldn't log in with my name & password so created new pw, couldn't do that either, said that name was already taken! So changed name also. Then when I thought I'd found the right place to post, got told that either name or pw was incorrect!! So had to go another route: forgot name & finally got recognized. What the heck is going on here?! 

 

I'm about to go buy a different brand of All-In-One just so I don't have to put up with this c#%*. 

I do not like this change, sure didn't have these problems with old board.

 

By the way, this whole process has robbed me of precious time that was needed else where.

Re: How to reclaim my old user?

This should not be this difficult.

My real user is http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/1103247

This duplicate user is http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/1348405

How about we delete my duplicate user?
