Changing the active Avatar in a clustered WebCenter Discussions environment does not have an
effect on the other node of the cluster.

2. On node 1 do the following:

I. Edit a user's profile

II. Edit the Avatar

III. Upload a first avatar

IV. Upload a second avatar to have two available.

V. Select the first one uploaded as the predefined avatar for the user.

VI. Save

3. On node 2 do the following:

I. Login as the same user as on node 1

II. Edit the same user's profile

III. Edit the Avatar - 2 avatars appears

IV. Select the second one as predefined avatar for the user.

V. Save

4. Again on node 1 do the following:

I. Login as the same user as on node 1

II. Edit the same user's profile

III. Edit the Avatar - 2 avatars appears with the 1st one as the selected avatar, despite that
