Have previosuly reported an issue with acceptance of dotted usernames passed from the Novell Client.

I hereby request that the ZCM Agent passive login takes into account that a username passed from the novell client MAY include dots "bjorn.kelsen" and that the Novell Client to handle this escapes the "." with "\" so the resulting username is "bjorn\.kelsen".

Now for a ZCM agent authentication to an AD the "\" should just be masked out, and if the user source points to eDir it should be handled as the Novell Client does.

A workaround could be that the Zen Agent uses the local username and not the name passed from the novell client, connecting this name with the secured password passed from the novell client. The local username will for obvious reasons not contain the offending "\"

Any comments ?
