Template name is placed in Other Name field of user


Novell ConsoleOne

When creating a user object from a template, the name of that template is placed in the "Other Name" field of the user.

Customer wanted to use "Other Name" for DirXML linking purposes


Fixed in ConsoleOne 1.3.6d or later. 

To avoid this, and to create a user with a blank "Other Name" field, place a single space in the "Other Name" field of the template. When the user is created, that space is stripped out, and the "Other Name" field is left blank.
Note that this is dependent upon the version of the snapins you have. Not all will work in this manner, and you should not rely upon it.
