      Description

      when using NTLM non SSO, new users are created depending on the login entered


      How to reproduce this?
      ==================
      1) configure a 3.1 NTLM system
      You do not need to modify the web.xml file to use the NTM filter as this has been reproduced with or without the filter
      2) assume you have a Active directory with a user "user1"
      which DN (Distingusihed Name) is:
      CN=user1,CN=Users,DC=example,DC=foo
      and its UPN (User Principal Name) is
      user1@example.foo

      then log into alfresco web ui (explorer) using the three different strings:
      a) user1
      b) user1@example
      c) user1@example.foo

      Result:
      ======
      The three authentications above creates three different users (see attached screen shot 'user_multi.png')

      Expected result:
      ==============
      As the three strings correspond to one unique user in AD (Active Directory) one would expect that this maps into just one unique user in Alfresco.


      As no easy solution/workaround was found by support, raising this as bug.
