A Zen workstation import contains the following filter
filter: "(&(name=orgnamehere)(|(objectclass=Org*)(objectclass=Loc*)(objectclass=Coun*)(objectclass=St*)))"

The "name" attribute is not returned.  This is causing workstation import failures for Zen 10

An example of a LDAP search for dn and name attribute to be returned:
ldapsearch -x -h -p 389 -D cn=admin,o=novell -w novell -b
"o=novell" -s sub '(&(objectClass=user))' dn name
The name will not be returned
Do a  search to return all attributes on an object returns all valued attributes
except 'name'
ldapsearch -x -h -p 389 -D cn=admin,o=novell -w novell -b
"o=novell" -s sub '(&(objectClass=user))'


The workaround is create an attribute mapping on the LDAP Group object of 'name' to 'name'
To create a mapping in iManager
  1. edit the ldap group object for your ldap serverClick on Attribute Map
  2. Click the "+" icon to add a mapping
  3. Select name from the eDirectory attribute in the drop down list
  4. in the Maps to field add name
  5. Click ok
  6. Refresh or restart ldap for the changes to take effect.
