Hmm, this is strange. It looks like you changed the uid properly.

Let's remove the ipa admin tools from the picture. Can the user try this
using your LDAP search basedn?

ldapsearch -Y GSSAPI -b dc=example,dc=com uid=1221

They may also want to try a kdestroy/kinit if it fails, though I don't
know why the principal wouldn't be accepted.

When binding in LDAP we need to map the Kerberos principal to a user
account. It may be that this mapping is failing. The ldapsearch command
may give us a more specific error message.
