Changing User Associations

We are trying to figure out if there is a way to change the association for the eDirectory users, while keeping the same AD user. Here's what we're trying to do:
user1.context1 ----> ADDomain\USERS\user1
change association to:
user1.context2 -----> ADDomain\USERS\User1
We need to maintain both user1.context1 and user1.context2 alive for a while.
A Few Suggested Solutions
Try the following when trying to change the association in eDirectory:
<modify association> <association>of context1</association> <association>to context2</association> </modify association>
This will change the association of 1 to 2 when being transformed in XSLT.
However, it sounds like you might be looking for the ability to delete the association of the users in eDir Context 1 and add the associations to the users in Context 2. Here's how to accomplish that task:
Do an LDIF extract of DirXML-Associations of users in Context 1.
Modify the file to do a delete of the attribute.
dn: cn=user1,o=context1 modifytype: modify delete: DirXML-Association DirXML-Association: ADdriver#1#GUIDvalue
Then change the original file to:
dn: cn=user1,o=context2 modifytype: modify add: DirXML-Association DirXML-Association: ADdriver#1#GUIDvalue
