Why log in via GDM fails for ldap users using different cases?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


If a user is defined in LDAP and group membership is defined using memberUid attribute in LDAP as well, then if the user is logged in via VNC using a case which is not in the database, the group membership does not come into effect.


User is defined in ldap as "abcd". Then trying to log in as "Abcd".
