Known issues

Web client login
Issue: If the SAM account name contains a space, the login will not work with entering the user name in the form "user@domain".
Resolution/Work-around: Use the user name in the format "domain\user".
User-defined templates
Issue: When using user-defined templates, AccountSearchTextField does not work for manager assignment.
Resolution/Work-around: Use a standard input field or, if possible, a drop-down menu.
Updating FS Logga components on Windows file servers
Issue: In some cases, automatic or manual updating of FS-Logga components on Windows file servers may fail.
Resolution/Work-around: Start the setup on the Windows file server and select the Repair option. The repair function removes the installation and reinstalls the components.
Active Directory accounts not resolved
Issue: In some cases, new installations may experience Active Directory (AD) scanning issues when scanning through a collector or ARM server installed on a domain controller (DC). This can result in AD accounts not resolving correctly under these conditions. Existing installations are not affected.
Resolution/Work-around: Install the ARM server or collector service on a different server, not on DCs.
