DESCRIPTION: Unable to Perform Dynamic Group Search of Novell Directory Server from AMC
SonicWall support has found an issue where performing a group search in AMC fail against a Novell Directory server. AMC's search adds sAMAccountName to the search filter by default, and because of this Novell Directory server sends back an NDS error.
ldapsearch output with sAMAccountName in the filter to the Novell Directory server looks something like this:
This issue affects only the group search functionality through AMC. Policyserver does not add the sAMAccountName to its search filter, so administrators can still save the group in AMC. Users in that group will be able to log in and match the proper community or rule.
An Enhancement Request has been filed to exclude sAMAccountName from the search filters in a future release.
