In a newly created domain, a user can successfully login to AdminServer but not the Managed Server. Since applications are deployed to Managed Server, the same user cannot access them.

User Password in managed server's embedded LDAP is not recognized and it is reported as INVALID. However, the password is reported as VALID by Admin Server's embedded LDAP. After many login tries user gets locked out.
