Error description

  • STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Configure RTCP to use LDAP for authentication in Installation
    Manager
    
    2. Do the Connect in Installation Manager
    
    3. Do the Test Logon
    
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    Log on is successful
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    The log on fails.  This is because RTCP has been getting the
    user's definitive name using an LDAP connection that was
    authenticated with the user's credentials, not the admin
    credentials
    
    
    WORKAROUND:
    None
