Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.3 Policies


Entering the fully qualified domain name  example ".csiltz.users.rdm.emea" in the Novell Client with a configured Dynamic Local Policy will fail to create the user.


User will be created with the complete name “.csiltz.users.emea.rdm”. When the fully qualified domain is longer than 20 characters, the creation of the Dynamic Local User will fail, since the username is only allowed up to 20 characters.
