I'm setting up a new GMS 2014.2.1 Build 237 server on SLES 12.1. Since we are 2014 R2 SP1 now, I am working my way from eDirectory sync to Active Directory sync.

I've got my GMS set to provision from LDAP with an Active Directory group DN set. I can drop my username in that AD group, tell GMS to poll, and it starts to provision my user. But my userID in GMS lists as: Firstname Lastname and the sync-init status goes to FAIL within 30 seconds or so.

If I provision my user from GroupWise, it comes in as: LastnameFirstInitial and it works.

Is there a setting somewhere where I can tell it to grab the User Logon Name from AD rather than the Name attribute?
