We've been migrating our authentication to krb5 for all of our local accounts.  A small problem has arisen, though... the authtype of returning students isn't being updated by autoenroll (I get an error message "Authentication type mismatch for xxxxxxxx - 'internal' in system, 'krb5' based on information in classlist or default for this course." and the student's authtype isn't changed).

I've been looking into the auto-update function, but as described in localenroll.pm, it doesn't seem to do authtype updates.

So, does anyone know of any way in which I can do a bulk update of authentication types so I don't have to pick through by hand ~ 1000 accounts that might be affected by this change.

Many thanks for any thoughts you could offer.
