Login failure when using Windows UPN name
This document (7013011) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
Users need to login using the Windows UPN (User Principal Name) intenet-style name.
The actual Windows account name is the same as the eDirectory common name (CN).
For example, a user (with an actual Windows username of "myflatusername") could login successfully through the Microsoft credential provider using "email@example.com". Then, Windows would pass "firstname.lastname@example.org" the Novell Client. The Novell Client would attempt to login using "email@example.com" as the specified username, which would fail because the eDirectory name is "myflatusername", matching the Windows username.
the Windows account name passed to the Novell Client is a UPN-style username, the Novell Client will:
- Query Windows to determine what the "flat" actual Windows account name is.
- Complete the eDirectory login attempt using the "flat" actual Windows account name instead of the UPN name.
