Unable to authenticate with UCNRS referral account
Running the JUnit test:
I noticed the UCNRS referral was not successful.
It works on the KNB:
But not on the trunk/localhost.

The issue was not in the authentication. It was in the method getUserInfo. In the getUserInfo method, it used a filter to combine the uid and organization. This part of code is not necessary since the search base is the dn. Moreover, this logical was overwritten by the assigning the filter by 'uid=user id'.
However, this part of code had an issue - it assumed the user dn should have a "," after "o=" if there is an "o=" in the dn. Our alias handing code dereferences the uid=testreferral,o=UCNRS,dc=ecoinformatics,dc=org to the uid=testreferral,ou=people,o=ucnrs.org.
So even though the dereferenced user dn has "o=", but after "o=" there is no ",". So it broke the code.
After i removed this part code, the junit test works.
