Item1816: Remove the DOMAIN\ part in the username

Under Windows NT (2k, XP, Vista, 2k3, 2k8), especially Windows Active Directory, the username has a prefix of the current domain.

The username then looks like DOMAIN\administrator.

If you try to create your own userbar or your own site, you have to create a Web called Main/DOMAIN, that's really bad and it makes alot of problems with the user access, cause of the slashes in the username and in the web.

There is a fix described in which removes the DOMAIN part in the username. Everything works normal after that.

It would be nice, to see this fix as an option in the LoginManager or somewhere else.

For all those poor Windows Users out there. wink

As far as I get it this only happens on an IIS. Does REMOTE_USER also have DOMAIN\ in it using Apache? If not then there should be a searate IISLogin similar to the ApacheLogin manager instead of adding these exceptions to the ApacheLogin manager for IIS.

yes, it happens on apache too

What's even worse is that the Windows Mini-redirector assumes your login ID is in a windows domain, and prepends the domain name whether you want it or not. There's no alternative for the server but to recognise such manglings and remove them frown, sad smile
