LDAP connector not working in ZCM 10.0.1 for exchange users

Microsoft Windows 2003 Server SP2
Novell Zenworks Configuration Management 10.0.1


The LDAP connector is not working with active directory users who have exchange email accounts. In the Zenworks Control Center when trying to manage a user, it should be ignoring the backslash on the usernames but gives an error, "not being able to determine the user's UID."


This is fixed in version 10.0.2 - see TID 3486285"Updates to ZENworks 10 Configuration Management" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support

Additional Information

The users that have an email account associated to them get put in the ZCC with a"username/" and when clicking on it, it will give an error. When there is no exchange email account associated with the user, the administrator can get into the ZCC and manage the users.
