    Resolution

    [REASON]
    - When a user is created or latest when a user logs into GoldMine a USERNAME.INI is created in this case it would be a GM.INI, but the GM.INI is a system generated configuraiton file containing the global information for a GoldMine system like GOLDDIR. COMMONDIR, SYSDIR etc. Therefore GoldMine cannot have and will not allow to create a user with a username GM and changes it automatically to GM1 instead.

    - It is absolutely recommended NEVER and also it is not supported to try to setup a user with a username same as a default system configuration file
    GM (GM.INI) >> Will result in GM1
    GOLDSYNC (GOLDSYNC.INI) >> Will result in GOLDSYN1
    ISEARCH (ISEARCH.INI) >> Will result in ISEARCH1
    DBALIAS (DBALIAS.INI) >> Remains as DBALIAS and Database definition will be retained along the user's preference
    GMSMODBC (GMSMODBC.INI) >> Crystal Reports integration in GoldMine Report's Center is officially not supported anymore
