I have a customer who (as part of an IDM project) is populating the "other name"
field of eDirectory users (effectively granting a secondary CN value). I assume
at this point it is for the purposes of their "identity vault" stuff.

I have been asked if NSM will be ok with that. I had a limited play in the lab
and it does not seem to affect anything, but I would be interested if there are
any know issues. Certainly, it does not appear you can use the Novell Client to
login using this secondary CN...

Has it ever been known that some NSM code may read the wrong value from the
multivalued User CN attribute instead of the Primary CN value?

Thanks and regards
