How to restore the correct case for Realm folders and IIS Apps



Older versions of Filesync (4.0.13 and lower) created realms using lowercase names instead of retaining CamelCase e.g. secureauth123 instead of SecureAuth123. 

This can cause problems with the Copy Utility in the SecureAuth Updater and problems as described in this article:



1. Take a snapshot/full backup of the IdP

2. Open PowerShell as Administrator

3. Stop the SecureAuth FileSync service

4. Run this command to rename the filesystem folders:

cd D:\SecureAuth; gci -Directory | ?{$ -cmatch "secureauth[0-9]{1,3}$"} | %{ren $_ "_$($"; ren "_$($" $'secureauth','SecureAuth')}

5. Run this command to rename the IIS Apps:

cd 'iis:\sites\default web site'; gci | ?{$ -cmatch "secureauth[0-9]{1,3}$"} | %{ren $ $'secureauth','SecureAuth')}

6.  Start the SecureAuth FileSync service



Special Considerations:  

The commands above require the IIS Administration module, so if not already imported run the following command first:

Import-Module WebAdministration
