Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

This isn't an issue with WCC 11g.

A user has special characters in their name, such as:

cn=Joe (User),ou=Users.dc=mycompany,dc=com

Or the container the user is located under has special characters or spaces, such as:

cn=jane,cn=MN (Minneapolis),dc=mycompany,dc=com

When these users log into the WCC, they aren't getting their expected roles and accounts.
