If an Active Directory user's Logon name is "jdoe" and "Display name" contains a forward or backward
slash for example: "Doe, John: VP\CIO" then login fails with:

This is fixed in version 10.3.1 - see KB 7006265 "ZENworks Configuration Management 10.3.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at
