When setting up a tree and specifying an administrative user not all of the default User naming attributes are available. Trying to create a User with a naming attribute other than CN results in an error stating there is a 'missing mandatory'. The naming attribute is not being copied to the Common Name (CN) attribute which is a mandatory of the User class.


A bug has been entered to copy the naming attribute for the user (regardless of what it is) to the CN attribute.
