Directory and Resource Administrator 6.50
Directory and Resource Administrator 6.60
Able to create computers that contain spaces in the computer name.
Able to create computers that contain lowercase characters in the computer names.
This is caused by an issue in DRA where spaces and lowercase as legal characters for computer names.
This issue has been resolved in Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA) version 7.0 and later. In DRA 7.0, the following is validated for the Computer name during the ComputerCreate operation:
- Characters can not be all numeric.
- Characters must be in the range ( a-z, A-Z, 0-9 and Hyphen).
- Use of any other characters will invalidate the name.
- The pre-Windows 2000 name (SamAccountName) is converted to uppercase.
In Directory and Resource Administrator 6.6 and prior, a PreTask trigger is available on the Knowledge depot under the section "Trigger & Policy Script" and is called computernamevalidator.vbs. This trigger should be tied to the ComputerCreate operation and trigger validates that the computer names do not contain spaces and the name is an alphanumeric value (a-z or A-Z or 0-9).
