ZFSSA RELEASES PRIOR TO 2013.1.2.0.

Goal

In releases prior to 2013.1.2.0, both the ZFSSA Browser User Interface (BUI) and Command Line Interface (CLI) failed to provide a facility to configure the LDAP service to connect to an LDAP server without authenticating itself.  This is often referred to as "anonymous" binding and is achieved in Solaris OS releases using the settings none/anonymous. This lack of a facility in the BUI and CLI to set none/anonymous is resolved by bug 17450664.
