If you have command line access to the server, as root, you can add a
DC privilege for a domain hosted on your server by running the
perl add_domain_coordinator_privilege.pl [USERNAME:DOMAIN] [DCDOMAIN]
The first argument specifies the username:domain of the existing user.
The second argument specifies the domain to be coordinated (i.e., csm).
This script will be found in the same directory as the
(i.e., in the loncom/build directory from where you installed the
version of LON-CAPA currently in use).
make_domain_coordinator.pl will fail if (a) the user already has a
unix account, or (b) the username is already in use for an existing
LON-CAPA user in the domain. So, in your situation it will fail
because of (b).
