LDAP Incorrectly Authenticates User IDs That Do Not Match Letter Case

Some LDAP implementations are case-insensitive, most notably Microsoft Active Directory. When using one of these LDAP distributions as a BA Server authentication back end, you might run into an issue where a valid user name with invalid letter cases will improperly validate. For instance, if Bill is the valid user ID, and someone types in bILL at the User Console login screen, that name will authenticate, but it might have improper access to parts of the BA Server.

The fix for this is documented: LDAP Authenticates User IDs That Do Not Match Case.
