Shifting groups from LDAP UME to portal database


Dear Friends

Currently we are using Netweaver Portal 7.02 sp12 and currently we are using Windows 2003 as our LDAP database and using the ads writeable xml .Now we are planning to us the Windows 2012 as our new LDAP.But we want to shift our Group maintenance from LDAP UME to portal database.In our old LDAP we have the concept of groups being assigned roles and the user is made member of the group. Furthermore we are using SSO from portal to ECC and CRM system.So I have two challenges.The earlier portal username was same as the SAP system username.In the new AD username is of the form name.surname which crosses the 12 character limit of SAP ABAP system.

1.Shifting of the groups from present LDAP UME to portal database.

2.SSO with the new LDAP.

We tried modifying the standard xml named databaseconfiguration_ads_writeable_db_modified but going to identity management we get the error

attached alongwith.Pl help in sorting out the issue.
