When the container in which the user resides has a special character in the name, search user function while adding a new user does not return any results.


Steps to Duplicate
  1. Create a Container with the name "IS&T"
  2. Create a user with the name "test user".
  3. Make sure that the user is able to login to the GroupWise client.
  4. Go to the DataSync Admin screen and try adding this user to the engine.
