APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When configuring stand-alone LDAP as a WebSphere Application
    Server user registry, IBM BPM synchronizes user information
    stored in LDAP incorrectly, by extracting user distinguished
    names from LDAP and inserts them as user names into the IBM BPM
    database. As a consequence, users cannot log in with the names
    they expect to use.
