Situation

After installing Domain Services for Windows the import of workstations is not working.

Resolution

Add an attribute mapping for eDirectory attribute "name" to LDAP attribute "name" to all LDAP group objects for LDAP servers where the query might be used.

Additional Information

Domain Services for Windows adds an attribute called "name" to the schema. This is a standard Active Directory attribute. "name" is used by extensible match queries in LDAP and is a shortcut to the naming attribute of any object.
