Symptoms

 Integrating LDAP (Active Directory) with ContentServer on WebSphere 7.0.0.11 has problems during authentication if the user has special characters in the distinguished name (dn). Content Server fails to recover the list of ACL associated with the user.

The following error is recorded in the logs.
