Does this mean error mean CA TDM is finding the user 2x in LDAP tree?

The LDAP USER DN was changed on LDAP, but never updated in the TDM Repository.


Release : 4.7.113

Component : CA Test Data Manager - TDM Web Portal


Changed the USER_DN column in TDM Repository manually to reflect the correct USER DN that was in LDAP and it fixed the problem.
