Issue/Introduction

Problem:

After trying to create a new user you are receiving an error message similar to this "Cause: Active Dir. Account 'Last, First ' on 'Active Directory SSL' creation failed: Connector Server Add failed: Invalid DN Syntax (LDAPSERVER) Action: Assign user "Last, First (FLast)" provisioning role "Test Role".

Another error that will be displayed will look similar to this one FAILURE: Connector Server Add (eTADSAccountName=Last, First )

Cause:

The user name that is trying to be entered has a space at the end of the First name causing an error.

Resolution:

Upon creating a user it is important to verify that there are no invalid characters inside the username or it will create the following error. 

 

"Cause: Active Dir. Account 'Last, First ' on 'Active Directory SSL' creation failed: Connector Server Add failed: Invalid DN Syntax (LDAPSERVER) Action: Assign user "Last, First (FLast)" provisioning role "Test Role".

 

After the space has been identified and remove. The user can be recreated and the message that will be received will look similar to this. 

SUCCESS: Connector Server Add (eTADSAccountName=Last, First)
