  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When creating a new TEP user that uses LDAP to determine the
    distinguished name (DN), if the DN contains any single quote
    marks, the newly created user does not contain the correct DN.
    The new user cannot log in. If the TEPS is restarted, the DN
    will be from the defaultWIMITMBasedRealm. This only occurs if
    the TEPS is using Microsoft SQL Server as the TEPS database.
    
    RECREATE INSTRUCTIONS:
    Create a new user, select a DN containing a single quote, click
    OK and attempt to save the user. The DN field will be blank.
