Novell iManager 2.6


Attempting to create certain types of objects (like Organisation or Organisation Unit) with Novell iManager 2.6, throws the following exception:

ERROR: JDOMParseException: Error on line 1: The entity name must immediately follow the \'&\' in the entity reference.


This issue is resolved in Novell iManager 2.6 SP4

Additional Information

This is a bug specific to Novell iManager 2.6 Maintenance Update 3.
As a workaround, use Novell iManager 2.6 Maintenance Update 2 to create these objects with ampersand (&) character in the CN (common name).
